54. Just friends

You never could be on time and
I never was much of a lover and
I never could stand to lose an
argument at a party.
I never could let you win and
I never could let things go and
You never could suffer it when I
didn't meet you half-way.

So go it alone,
Suffer on, just a little bit longer,
need a little more time to work it out.
So go on ahead.
Suffer on, just a little bit longer,
need a little more time to let it go.

You never were stern enough, and
I always was much too uptight.
You never could understand why I
never stopped to smell the roses
I never could hold my tongue and
You never could hold your liquor and
We never could seem to work the
details out together.


SOLO. (Repeat last chorus)

I never could stay in ohio and
you never could leave your job and
we never could cut the distance
out of our relationship.
You never could express yourself, and
I never would hear you out
and we never would see things eye to eye
on issues of importance.

The album was placed on a number of End-of-Year lists. Of note, the Editor-in-Chief of Noisey named the song "Bitter Pill" one of the ten best songs of the year.
