Should be sayin' that to you by now, shouldn't I?
Layin' down the law that I live by,
Though maybe next time

I've got a thick tongue,
Brimming with the words that go unsung
I simmer then I burn for a someone,
A wrong one

And I tell myself to let the story end,
My heart will rest in someone else's hand

My 'why not me?' philosophy began,
And I say

Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, hey, I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight
But someday
"I'll be alright, just not tonight" is surprisingly soothing.
