I hitchhiked my way from Dijon to Bordeaux
While you were in the art room playing silly songs
It wasn’t long before my pride got the best of me
And, it wasn’t long before the show
You took hold of my hand, and then let me fall through waiting arms
Tell me what’s this young man to do?
A brash sober response, or a well thought out drunken plea
Which route is the right way to go?

How many times must you break my wounded heart
How long until we're through
And when, when will I understand,
That I’m not the man for you?

So then I went back, across the world to my home town
Just to lie in bed alone
How will you show me that you ever gave a care?
How will I know your words are true?
There’s this certain notion that keeps me warm on lonely nights
Darling this is also hard for you
So think of me please, and listen to my happy songs
Just know that I wrote them for you

How many times do you have to smash my strawberry tart?
How many times until we’re through?
How long will it take for me to understand,
That I’m not the man for you?
