picture picture lyrics – harvey danger

dog in the manger, always a danger
you got me so, so wrong
so what? so long. don’t be a stranger.

it had barely started out before it started heading
south
in the neverending story of the love that dare not shut
its mouth

i get the picture (picture!)
i think i get it (think, no!)
i think i know (no, no!)
i wish i didn’t (still!)
i think i get it.

behind the curtain, we got to flirting
it was a gateway drug (i know, i know)
it’s disconcerting, even now
when i’m still driving by your house
when it’s late at night and the lights are out
and i saw somebody sneaking in your side door
(what are friends for, anyway?)
i’m just wondering who you think
you are fooling with such a tired myth
that says some people are better off alone
than with a steppin’ stone

i get the picture (picture!)
i think i get it (think, ha!)
i think i know (no, no!)
i wish i didn’t (still!)
i think i get it.

why do you insist on being such a girl about it?
you said you hoped we could still be friends…
i doubt it.
no one owes a debt.
index finger, second fret: another song
a torch to warm the winter of our disconnect
now i’m still trying to decide
between thwarted l*st and wounded pride
when i see your absence everywhere i look
and even when i close my eyes

i get the picture (picture!)
i think i get it (think, no!)
i think i know (no, no!)
i wish i didn’t
wish i could be cold (c-c-cold!)
like certain people up in the mixture, (no, no!)
i get the picture (still!)
i think i get it.
