Portishead - Nylon Smile Lyrics

I'd like to laugh at what you said
But I just can't find a smile
I wonder why you can't
I struggle with myself
Hopping I might change a little
Hopping that I might be
Someone I wanna be

Looking out I wanna know someone might care
Looking out I want a reason to be there
'Cause I don't know what I've do to deserve you
I don't know what I'll do, without you

I can't see nothing good
And nothing is so bad
I've never had the chance to explain
Exactly what I meant
