Ben Folds - In Love lyrics

I remember
The night we met
That night we sat
Entwined
Under summer skies
I looked into your eyes
And
You looked into mine

You said
Oleander holly
"You're not like the rest"
And I nodded
Crimson feet of Collie
"No one understands me"
You said
And I nodded once again
Beautiful and lovely
As if to agree that all men
Are indeed the same
My baby
Somehow, you said
The only one
I was different

Who really understands me
Floating hand in hand we
Whisper in the moonlight
And say that I'm
The things you want to see

Kody and her star child
For months on end
I maintained
Goddess of the moonlight
A veneer of sincere interest
Hold me in the morning
As if I were listening
As you relived every page
And tell me I'm
Of self-help and new age
the only one alive
That you'd read
And
Who really understands you
I went in for the kill
I'd read the same books
Tell me pretty stories
I learned to ape the motions
Of a sensitive human being
Say you understand me
And we were oh, so happy
My baby
But you found things to fix
The things you want to see
And I knew it was time
To move on
But I could never be
In love
In love

So now you have me
Completely figured out
You feel sorry for me
I can't express my feelings
I can't tell the truth
We are all alike
At puberty, I was sworn to secrecy
By the international brotherhood
Of lying, fickle males
I can't tell you anything
And I can't commit
You're right
I can't commit
To you

Hold me in the morning
I will always treasure
Our time together
Tell me pretty stories
I don't feel enough of anything
To harbor the kind of disdain
Say that you're the only one
That you'll maintain
You painted me into what you
My baby
Wanted to see
That's fine
But I could never be
But you will never know me
In love
In love

Oleander holly
Crimson feet of Collie
Beautiful and lovely
My baby
The only one
Who really understands me
