i want you around lyrics – fountains of wayne

verse 1
on this day, i’m walking a fine line
imagining my minds fine, ok
tougher than nylon
safe as a house on the way

chorus 1
my little darling
don’t you cry, it makes you look older
c’mon now hey, don’t you be down
i want you around
i want you around
i want you arooooouuunnnnddd

verse 2
here’s my plan, i’m losing the halo
it’s time to lay low man, some plan
come the high water
i’ll be your drowning man

chorus 2
my little darling
don’t you cry, it makes you look older
c’mon now hey, don’t you be down
i want you around
i want you around
i want you arooooouuunnnnddd
i want you around
i want you arooooouuunnnnddd

bridge
while i’m doing battle with myself and me
i’m doing battle with gravity
and i can’t face myself alone
i can’t bear to be alone with me

hey don’t you be down
i want you around
i want you around
i want you arooooouuunnnnddd

repeat to fade
