ugly love lyrics – eels

dear cousin,
i got your letter
it was more than i thought i deserved
well she sounds perfect, all i dream of
and i dream about so much it is absurd
but when i get there and she sees me
i’ll be impressed if she does not run screaming

my kind of love is an ugly love
but it’s real and it lasts a long, long time

i had a thought while i was sleeping
and i dreamed about a place for us to rest
eternity under the old oak tree
but i go too far i guess
maybe i’ll think about tomorrow
and maybe i can get her to stay that long

’cause my kind of love is an ugly love
but it’s real and it lasts a long, long time

and if she finds me so repulsive
she wouldn’t be the first to wretch
well i decided one day long ago
i was never gonna be the greatest catch
and if she cares about the car i drive
then she can get in hers
the moment i arrive

’cause my kind of love is an ugly love
but it’s real and it lasts a long, long time
