i am trying to break your heart lyrics – wilco

i am an american aquarium drinker
i *ss*ssin down the avenue
i’m hiding out in the big city blinking
what was i thinking when i let go of you?

let’s forget about the tongue-tied lightning
let’s undress just like cross-eyed strangers
this is not a joke, so please stop smiling
what was i thinking when i said it didn’t hurt?

i want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
take it from the inside, baby hold on tight
you were so right when you said that i’ve been drinking
what was i thinking when i said good night?

i want to hold you in the bible-black predawn
you’re quite a quiet domino, bury me now
take off your band-aid because i don’t believe in touchdowns
what was i thinking when i said h*llo?

i’d always thought that if i held you tightly
you’d always love me like you did back then
then i fell asleep and the city kept blinking
what was i thinking when i let you back in?

i am trying to break your heart
i am trying to break your heart
but still i’d be lying if i said it wasn’t easy
i am trying to break your heart

disposable dixie-cup drinking
i *ss*ssin down the avenue
i’m hiding out in the big city blinking
what was i thinking when i let go of you?

loves you
i’m the man who loves you
