lyrics

If we're gonna fall in love, let's get busy
You know being friends is just fine with me
You know being friends is all there is really
For geniuses like you and me

We got this weird obsession with the truth, you know
We got God talking to us through the radio
We hear Satan's voice ringing in the overtones
We know everything; why are we still alone?
Why are we still alone?
Why are we still alone?

If you're gonna kill me softly, start strummin'
I only seem to put nails in coffins, see
So now I only sing songs 'bout make believe
But you can play a song for me

And I'll know the truth when I hear it, yo
Studied a quarter of a million love songs or so
I know every lyric and every note
I'll teach you everything if you tell me why I'm still alone
Why am I still alone?
Why am I still alone?

To wait another day
'X' marks the date on the calendar
Another day I'd just as soon forget
Immortalized in song

Wait another day
'X' marks the date on the calendar
Yet another day I'd just as soon forget
Immortalized in song

I'm gonna fall in love, I can feel it
I'm still not sure how I'm supposed to deal with this
I don't have a move, I won't steal a kiss
I am at peace with my awkwardness

And I know it shouldn't be a struggle
And I refuse to let this thing get overblown
I won't throw a fit, I'll drop you right at home
Just tell me one thing: why are you still alone?
Why are you still alone?
Baby why are you still alone?
Baby why are you still alone?
Baby why are you still alone?
