This is how I feel
And I won't let you tell me, it isn't real
This is how I feel
And I won't let you tell me, it shouldn't be
Maybe you can stay
In the centre of your own little world
Zen doesn't work for everyone 
And it sure doesn't seem to work for this whirlwind girl

Maybe I suffer, maybe I suffer
Maybe I do
Maybe I suffer, but I sure have a lot more fun than you

This is how I feel
And admittedly it hasn't got me very far
Though they used to say, we were like two trains on the same track
Two halves of the same star
Now they tell me
It's clearly headed for disaster
But they don't see you
They don't see what you look like
The morning after

Maybe I suffer, maybe I suffer
Maybe I do
Maybe I suffer, and I'm still not sure
If it's worth it for you
Maybe I suffer, but when you're looking
Oh so fine
That's when I deserve you,
That's when you are all mine

When it fits, it fits so well
When it doesn't, it is hell
When my mind has gone too far
Yours is inside your guitar
Ah, see me
Ah, hear me
Ah, it's not your responsibility
Ah, but I'm sick of invisibility

Maybe I'll suffer, maybe I'll suffer
Maybe I won't
Coz I decide now, what I give out
And what I don't
This is how I feel,
But I won't let it take over
Let tomorrow be tomorrow...
But baby, tonight...
...Hey, why don't you come over?
