=============================


        I really care a lot
        although I look like I do not
        Since I was shot
        there's nobody but you

        I know I look blasé
        party Andy's what the papers say
        At dinner I'm the one who pays
        for a nobody like you

        Nobody but you
        a nobody like you
        Since I got shot
        there's nobody but you

        Won't you decorate my house
        I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
        You know me I like to look a lot
        at nobody but you

        I'll hold your hand and slap my face
        I'll tickle you to your disgrace
        Won't you put me in my proper place
        a nobody like you

        Sundays I pray a lot
        I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
        I want to be what I am not
        for a nobody like you

        The bullet split my spleen and lung
        the doctors said I was gone
        Inside I've got some shattered bone
        for nobody but you

        Nobody but you
        a nobody like you
        Shattered bone
        for nobody but you

        I'm still not sure I didn't die
        and if I'm dreaming I still have bad pains inside
        I know I'll never be a bride
        to nobody like you

        I wish I had a stronger chin
        my skin was good, my nose was thin
        This is no movie I'd ask to be in
        with a nobody like you

        Nobody like you
        a nobody like you
        All my life

        It's been nobodies like you
