handshake drugs lyrics – wilco

i was chewin’ gum for something to do
the blinds were being pulled down on the dew
inside, out of love, what a laugh
i was looking for you

saxophones started blowing me down
i was buried in sound
taxicabs were driving me around
to the handshake drugs i bought downtown
to the handshake drugs i bought downtown

they were translated poorly, i felt like a clown
i looked like someone i used to know
i felt alright
and if i ever was myself
i wasn’t that night

oh it’s okay for you to say
what you want from me
i believe that’s the only
way for me to be, exactly
what you want me to be

oh it’s okay for you to say
what you want from me
i believe that’s the only
way for me to be
exactly what you want me to be

oh i was chewin’ gum for something to do
the blinds were being pulled down on the dew
inside, out of love, what a laugh
i was looking for you

saxophones started blowin’ me down
i was buried in sound
the taxicabs were driving me around
to the handshake drugs i bought downtown
to the handshake drugs i bought downtown

oh it’s okay for you to say
what you want from me
i believe that’s the only
way for me to be
exactly what do you want me to be?
exactly what do you want me to be?

felt like a clown
they were translating poorly
i looked like someone
i used to know
and if i ever was myself,
i wasn’t that night

exactly what do you want me to be?
exactly what do you want me to be?
