A Guy Like Me

from CARAMELANCHOLYFLOWER by Stephen Bard

lyrics

Every morning over there at Jake's coffee shop
Early rose girl taking time to stop
Looks like she's smiling and laughing a lot
Through the blind
It's pretty clear now that I've lost my mind

Rearranging the alarm
Hardly sleeping at all
So I can follow her down to the Salvation Hall
Hiding in the car
How could she possibly see
What's good about a guy like me?

I wake up and it's Tuesday
Her visiting day
She brings a batch of toys around
And watches them play
Looks like she's hugging and kissing them all
Through the shade
Now I'm three behind her in the Gay Rights Parade

And if there's any good here
It remains to be seen
Too busy with the mouse
And all these chicks on the screen
If I'm lying in a bar
How could she possibly see
What's good about a guy like me?

Wednesday night she runs NA
The heroin(e) to all who stay
Thursday mornings at the Y
She drains the river Jordan dry
Weekends if she's on some date
I sit at home and master...video games
Video games!

Another morning over there at Jake's coffee shop
I'm looking for the angel but she doesn't show up
Nobody seems to be smiling at all
Through the blind
It's pretty clear now that I've lost my mind
