( Desperate song lyrics )
I'M NOT THAT DESPERATE ... YET
Copyright 2000 - MickTerry.com

You'd like to think you're the best there ever was:
the top of the line, the state of the art, first class.
You'd like to think you're in full control because
you take what you want, you grab what you need unasked.
Well, I hate to break it to you,
but it's not the way it seems:
you never could control me from the start.

    Yeah, we had a good thing, a nice little romp, a sweet fling.
    But things don't last forever & it got about as bad as it gets.
    Yeah, we had a good thing, a nice little romp, a sweet fling.
    But things don't last forever.
    'Though you'd like to get back together,
    I'M NOT THAT DESPERATE ... YET.

You'd like to think you had pulled me from the crowd
and raised me above the crush of the mob below.
You'd like to think I was tasteless, crude and loud:
a work you could mold from a shapeless embryo.
Well, I hate to burst your bubble,
but Pygmalion you are not.
I just don't have the same pretense as you.

    CHORUS

        Did you think you had found me
        in the gutter with no aplomb,
        to the point where I would be so dependent on you?
        Did you think you'd astound me
        with your elegance & your charm
        to the point where I would be so enamored with you?

You like to think about you and you alone,
how far up above and better your life must be.
You'd like to think you're the talk in every home:
how everyone yearns to live like the life you lead.
Well, I hate to bear grim tidings,
but you're not quite all that hot.
And no one really likes you all that much.

    CHORUS

To other negative love song lyrics:   STORIES
ALL OVER YOU
I'M TRADING YOU IN
BEAUTY OF THE SCARS
NOT OK 2B NOT OK w/ U
DOWN ON THE SIDEWALK
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE
SHE WILL NOT SAY SHE'S SORRY
SOMETIMES I JUST WANT TO CRY
MASSACRE ON VALENTINE'S NIGHT
NO WAY (THAT I'M GOING BACK HOME YET)
To the TOP
