I really care a lot
Since I was shot

Party Andy's what the papers say
for a nobody like you
Nobody but you
Since I got shot

I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
at nobody but you
I'll hold your hand and slap my face
Won't you put me in my proper place

I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
for a nobody like you
The bullet split my spleen and lung
Inside I've got some shattered bone

a nobody like you
for nobody but you
I'm still not sure I didn't die
I know I'll never be a bride

my skin was good, my nose was thin
with a nobody like you
Nobody like you
All my life
It's been nobodies like you
I really care a lot
Since I was shot

Party Andy's what the papers say
for a nobody like you
Nobody but you
Since I got shot

I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
at nobody but you
I'll hold your hand and slap my face
Won't you put me in my proper place

I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
for a nobody like you
The bullet split my spleen and lung
Inside I've got some shattered bone

a nobody like you
for nobody but you
I'm still not sure I didn't die
I know I'll never be a bride

my skin was good, my nose was thin
with a nobody like you
Nobody like you
All my life
It's been nobodies like you
