Spoon, “Written In Reverse”

I’m writing this to you in reverse
Someone better call a hearse
I can see it all from here from just a few glimpses
Now that light bulb’s gone off and it’s pulling my winces
Now the light bulb’s gone on
I’ve seen it in your eyes
I’ve seen you blankly stare
And I wanna show you how I love you but there’s nothing there
I’m not standing here
Oh I’m not standing here
And I’m writing in reverse
I know it could be worse
I’m not standing here
And I’m not standing here
And I’m writing in reverse
I know it could be worse
And I hear that famous song
When I hear it I can’t be wrong

I know nothing was planned, you just can’t help yourself
Some people are so easily shuffled and dealt
If there was only one of us you truly felt
We’re getting your all and it feels real good
But only briefly like high school poppers would
Where you lose a bit of yourself
Where you lose a bit of yourself
I’m not standing here
Oh I’m not standing here
And I’m writing in reverse
Know it could be worse
I hear that famous song
I feel that I can’t be wrong

All I know is all I know
Yeah all I know is all I know is all I know
I’m writing this to you in reverse
Someone better call a hearse
I can see it all from here from just a few little glimpses
Now that light bulb’s gone off and it’s pulling my winces
Now the light bulb’s gone on
I’ve seen it in your eyes
And there’s nothing there
There’s nothing there
I want to show you how I love you
I can see you blankly stare
