melrose diner lyrics – the wonder years

“melrose diner”

i hate your bad tattoos and your second-hand stories;
those anecdotes that grew old last month.
i hate the way you move when you’re drunk and try dancing.
it’s not s*xy.
it’s just keeping us up and i’m just not fond of anyone,
but that’s got everything to do with us.

i hate the way i get when i can’t handle bad news.
it feels like i’ve been an *sshole for months.
all i’ve got left are these handfuls of f*ck you and man,
that’s never enough.

i guess i’m just down.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.
i can’t stand the dork that you’re hanging with now.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.

i hate the way that you can’t keep your hair straight.
i hate the way that you’re leaning on me.
i hate the way that you point out when girls are staring
because you know that i won’t do a thing.

i hate the context clues you leave out of your writing
because i can’t find myself here at all.
you know that i hate when you call me wasted.
i expect it whenever you call.

i guess i’m just down.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.
i can’t stand the dork that you’re hanging with now.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.
i could use you around.
i could use you around now.

my friends all say he’s just a b-rate version of me;
he’s stuck on video games and weed.
they’re just trying to help me get to sleep.

my friends all say you’re sitting way too close to me,
that i should just get up and leave.
it’s like i’m weighed down to the seat.

my friends all say he’s just the broke-d*ck version of me.
they’re just trying to help me get some sleep.
i know he’s what you need.

i guess i’m just down.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.
i can’t stand the dork that you’re hanging with now.
i guess i’ll be honest.
i could use you around.
