about

A song about codependency and watching too much 30 Rock alone.

lyrics

(2006 the matthew show)

I just drank a beer, I don’t know why
I just drank three more, I don’t know why
Then you came down, we fooled around, and now I’m clean & dry
It’s the difference between me and me & you

I ate a box of Krispy Kremes today
Shouted at myself to go away
Then you came back and I relaxed and now I’m all okay
It’s the difference between me and me & you

CHORUS:
Why do you leave me alone with myself
The last place I ever want to be
‘Cause the difference between the wrong thing and the right thing to do
Is the difference between me and me & you

I had sex with Tina Fey today
Then the TV stopped and made it go away
Then you came in, my favorite sin, and I knew what to do
It’s the difference between me and me & you

Maybe I should kill myself today
It’s the only thing to make me go away
But I find that it’s too much of a cruel a thing to do
Not so much to me, but more to me & you

(CHORUS)
