... But I Don't Want To Talk About Her lyrics
... But I Don't Want To Talk About Her
I write poetry
I`m very romantic
Wait, I`m tough too
A romantic, tough guy
Yeah, sorta like Rock Hudson`
This one time, I wrote a poem for my ex-girlfriend
That`s the best thing I`ve ever read
And she reads poets, yet
Yates, Cummings, you name it
She`s got all these guys bouncing round her head
She sounds great
She has an insight that could win a Pulitzer Prize
There`s in genius in her mind that truly sparkles through her eyes
She`s so smart, to be near make`s your intelligence rise`
But, I don`t want to talk about her
So, uh, what do you do`
I`m a photographer.
Wow, okay. What kind of stuff do you do`
I try to capture the beauty of the human spirit.
Speaking of beauty, that reminds me of my ex-girlfriend
Oh, she was gorgeous, but she never really knew it
She had this smile, I swear to God
You were blessed if you had one chance to view it
She had a look that could inspire symphonies
Or cause the most stubborn men to have epiphanies
She was as enchanting as Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany`s`
But I don`t want to talk about her
So, you have an ex-girlfriend`
Ugh, I don`t want to talk about her.
Oh, right, sorry. There`s some things I don`t want to talk about either.
I don`t want to talk about the fact that I
Can`t seem to find a single guy
Who meets all my desires
That`s fine. Maybe we could talk about`
I don`t want to talk about how many men
Have claimed that they would be the one
And it turns out they`re all liars
I don`t want to talk about the day when I
Experimented with my girlfriend
And I almost came out
We can talk about that if you really want to.
But there`s always something missing
Now matter where I search
But, that`s not what I want to talk about
Oh, man` you`re kind of a whiner.
I`m sorry, but wasn`t it you who spent the first half of this conversation talking about your ex-girlfriend`
How dare you bring up the topic of my ex-girlfriend`!
Yeah, but you were the`. WHAT`!
Who is gorgeous and brilliant, by the way.
Yeah, I heard.
You know, I`m trying not to think about it and you throw it in my face`!
Now I`m all upset, and it`s the fifteenth time today
Less than I would`ve guessed.
I`m not the type who runs or hides
I follow my plan
Follow my guides
No matter how misguided they may be
I know we`ll be together
I don`t want to talk about her
