lyrics

I've been noticing you for a while
Since that time I broke your leg
In karate class -
I really kicked your ass.

And I've been noticing your for a year,
Since we became good friends, my dear,
Saw you stony faced with fear
When all the boys and
Girls approach your ears with proclamations
Some so sweet, but you still smack them away.

Listen here, Jenny,
Oh, you really think you know me,
But you have no idea the people I have lost -
Lost to lies
And infidelities,
Lost to paranoia and pleurisy,
Lost to my gullibility
If I have to mourn once more then I will surely break.

There's something I have to say
You don't have to say a word
Just friends is not enough
I already heard it all from Kevin,
Don't you know he tells me everything?

Jonny, won't you let me in?
Jenny, won't you go away?
I have eyes for no-one else
That's what my ex-wife said
And, now she's shacked up with some floozy in Dakota

You've got to take a chance in life
Don't need more reasons to lament
You could get hit by a bus
I'd prefer that to this argument
I've been there, done that,
I just cannot go through that again.

Jonny, won't you let me in?
Jenny, won't you go away?
I'll be the greatest love of your life
He's already dead
And lives in every beat and breath and bite and kiss
In every sip and stroke
In every heart
In every heart....
In every heart exploding wish

Is there nothing I can say?
There is nothing you can say.

Jonny, why did you leave us
Getting hit by a bus, like I warned you.
Now ours forever will be the love
That never had a chance.
