Man:That’s a strange thing… is actually yours now. I don’t know why it works this way, but… I’m never gonna be able to get over you, so… From now on, every girl that I meet will be meticulously compared to you… And unfortunately, none of them will be able to measure up with the false memory of what you and I once “had”.
Woman: Well, maybe I can just keep it for a little while and use it for small things like when I’ve had a really shitty day or when I need someone to talk to or if I need someone to move something really heavy, and then eventually I’ll give it back to you when we both find someone new”.
Man: Unfortunately, does not work that way.
Woman: Why not?
Men: Well…now you had my heart, I’m pretty much a empty cavity inside, for lack to a better term, “heartless”, I will now treat each women i meet, with a passive/aggressive contentiousness that will ruin relationship after relationship for many years to come.”
Now I can sing you the storyline And if you like my story fine But ain’t none of the glory mine See my life was a lonely one And I was still momma’s only son With no idea what I’m gon’ become And I didn’t have long to know That you don’t have to be grown to go I could have died so long befo’ Then I finally saw the sign And I made it on down the line One step at a time
[Chorus] I feel better! I can smile at it now, I feel better Ohhhh, better! And even a little is still better Oh, have mercy on me
[Cee-Lo] Ohhh it’s probably plain to see That I got a whole lot of pain in me And it will always remain in me So cold, it’s a cryin shame Yet here I am, tryin again Cause I refuse to die in vain The circumstances put soul in me And there ain’t no holdin me I’ve got a heart made of gold in me Hah, can you believe this is where I’ve been? And when adversity comes again I’ll deal with it then
[Chorus] I feel better! I can laugh at it now, I feel better, heh heh Ohhhh, better! And even a little is still better Oh, have mercy on me-heeeeeeee
I said everything’s fine, you can take your time What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time I said everything’s fine, take yo’ time What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time I wanna thank you morning sun I wanna thank you lowly dirt Now I know I’m not the only one I, I wanna thank you friendly ghost When all the calls were close It seems like you cared the most I, I wanna thank you Mom and Dad For hurtin me so bad But you’re the best I ever had I, I wanna thank you… [fades]
