that look you give that guy lyrics – eels

i never thought that i could be so bold
to even say these thoughts aloud
i see you with your man
your eyes just shine
while he stands tall
and walking proud

that look you give that guy
i wanna see
looking right at me
if i could be that guy
instead of me
i’d never let you down

it always seems like you’re going somewhere
better than you’ve been before
while i go to sleep and i dream all night
of you knocking at my door

that look you give that guy
i wanna see
looking right at me
if i could be that guy
instead of me
i’d be all i can be

i’m nothing like what i’d like to be
i’m nothing much i know it’s true
i lack the style and the pedigree
and my chances are so few

that look you give that guy
i wanna see
looking right at me
if i could be that guy
instead of me
i’d give you all i got

i never thought that i could be so bold
to even say these thoughts aloud
but it, let’s say, it won’t work out
you know where i can be found

that look you give that guy
i wanna see
looking right at me
if i could be that guy
instead of me
i’d never let you down
