in hindsight, one wouldn't ask anyone to ride off into one's delusional sunset

i once negatively answered grashupfer's query as to whether sara bareilles had written love song about me (she assured me she'd never write a love song about me, not even in meta). but i see she has gone and wrote an unlove song about me. (for the record it was iced coffee.) but it has a nice video with polaroids, and i can't say i'm displeased.




oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

keep drinkin' coffee
stare me down across the table
while i look outside

so many things i'd say if only i were able
but i just keep quiet
and count the cars that pass by

you've got opinions, man
we're all entitled to 'em
but i never asked

so let me thank you for time
and try to not waste any more of mine
get out of here fast

i hate to break it to you babe
but i'm not drowning
there's no one here to save

who cares if you disagree?
you are not me
who made you king of anything?
so you'd dare
tell me who to be?
who died
and made you king of anything?

oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

you sound so innocent
all full of good intent
you swear you know best

but you'd expect me to
jump up on board with you
and ride off into your
delusional sunset

i'm not the one who's lost
with no direction oh
but you won't ever see

you're so busy makin' maps
with my name on them in small caps
you've got the talkin' down
just not the listening

and who cares if you disagree?
you are not me
who made you king of anything?
so you'd dare
tell me who to be?
who died
and made you king of anything?

all my life
i've tried
to make everybody happy while i
just hurt
and hide
waitin' for someone to tell me it's my turn
to decide

oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

who cares if you disagree?
you are not me
who made you king of anything?
so you'd dare
tell me who to be?
who died
and made you king of anything?

who cares if you disagree
you are not me
who made you king of anything
so you'd dare
tell me who to be?
who died
and made you king of anything

(let me hold your crown, babe)
