lyrics

Finding love in a cynical world
You are not just some fag hag
But you’re my best friend not my girl
I could fuck you but it ain’t my bag

Course I love you and I’m always here
Thick or thin I’m welded to your side
And I know you’ll always keep me near
There's no escaping you, although I’ve tried

You know I’ll never leave you
As you’ll never leave me be
But darling I don’t need you
Quite as much as you need me

Finding hope in uncertain times
Goodness knows we’ve looked for love
And you know I love your damaged mind
You and me are just so messed up

I clothe you and I feed you
But you show me how to be
So maybe then I need you
Just as much as you need me

We live inside each other’s gilded cage
And I’ll be there for you until old age

Finding love in a cynical world
You are not just some fag hag
But you’re my best friend not my girl
I could fuck you but it ain’t my bag

Maybe we both are in love
We could settle down and have some kids
But the sex would mess things up
And we’d fuck up like our parents did

You’d keep me in your gilded cage
Just yearning to be free
When darling I don’t need you
Quite as much as you need me

You sing to me and bring to me
Most everything you do
But maybe you don’t need me
Quite as much as I need you

We live inside each other’s gilded cage
And you’ll be there for me until old age
