one in ten lyrics – third eye blind

“one in ten”

no chance i could be her boyfriend
i’m trying to flip butch girls again
we could see what life pretends
and why don’t i still call a friend?

she says, you know i love you, but i feel so one in ten.

and life is short and dull
categorize to the full, until the charm is gone.
and you’re a big girl, if you wanna get it on, you will
and if you don’t, you won’t

she says, you know i love you, but i feel so one in ten.

you could have such a life, with me
you could knit baby sweaters,
we could watch the flatscreen t.v.

she says, you know i love you, but i feel so one in ten.

what’s the differences, when it goes down?
if it’s a girl, or if it’s guys?
can’t you just close your eyes?
baby, close your eyes.
baby, close your eyes.

love doesn’t come in perfect packages, that means i qualify.
and i know it’s not your way, but i thought we could give it a try.

she says, you know i love you, but i feel so one in ten.
you know i love you, but i feel so one in ten.
you know i love you, she’ll always be my one in ten.
