A Lot Like You

lyrics

I wish I wasn't jealous
Of the things that you do
When things don't work out for me,
The way that they do for you
You wear your heart on your sleeve
Mine is left on the shelf
You don't seem to have a problem
Speaking up for yourself.

When you see your chance
You grab it by the horns
I cannot commit myself
"Til I'm totally sure.
When I see my chance
I just have to run-
Maybe I'm afraid to be
Burnt by my time ine the sun

Well it's a lot like you but not like me
to take what you want and to get what you need
It's a lot like you but not like me
To take what you want and to get, and you get what you need.

Feeling unrequited
Is nothing unusual to me
But we were both invited-
You returned the RSVP
It's not like these things
Are even really out of my reach
But you understand how to hold out both your hands
And you dig them in the sand and that's why your life is a beach.

When you see your chance
You grab it by the horns
I can not commit myself
"Til I'm totally sure
When I see my chance
Just at it has passed
That's when I console myself about nice guys finishing last.

If I was more like you that'd work for me
Cos I'd take what I wan't and I'd get, and I'd get what I need.
