lyrics

When I grow up, I want to be a hermit
I'll live alone in a cabin in the woods
I'll write to you a letter every few days
But no-one ever comes to take them away

Sometimes I feel like nobody loves me
Other times I feel like you love me too much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never there

I hope someday you will come to visit
I'd like to show you all about me and my life
"See, here's my living room" is just what I would say to you
But I'll never tell you where I live

Sometimes I feel like nobody loves me
Other times I feel like you love me too much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never there

Sometimes I feel like nobody loves me
Other times I feel like you love me too much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever there

Sometimes I feel like nobody in this world is in love with me
Other times I feel like you love me way too much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside me ready to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never never never ever ever ever there

I could help it
Yes, I could help it
But I won't
I won't
Yes, I could help it
Yes, I could help it
But I won't

Sometimes I feel like nobody loves me-e-e-e
Other times I feel like you love me too, way too fucking much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never ever ever ever never never gonna be there

Yes, I could help it
Yes, I could help it
But I won't
And I never will
Yes, I could help it
Yeah, I could help it
But I won't
Oh, oh, oh

Sometimes I feel like nobody in this world loves me
Other times I feel like you love me way too much, way too, way too much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside me, you're ready to comfort me
But when I need someone, anyone, you're never never never gonna, never gonna be there

Yes, I could help it
Yes, I could help it
But I won't
And I'm never gonna help it
Yes, yes, I could help it
Yes, I could help it
But I won't
And I never will

Sometimes I feel like nobody lo-o-o-o-o-oves me
Other times I feel like you love me way too, way too fucking much
When I want to be alone, you're right beside to comfort me
But when I need someone, you're never ever ever never never never never never never never never never there

And I could help it
But I won't
Yes, I could help it (one)
I could help it (two)
I could help it (three)
But I won't (four)
But I won't
