"Hey there, baby"

“Hey there, baby”

Hey there baby, maybe you're just too stupid to understand
that I'll always love ya crazy
and that I wanna hold your hand.

Hey there baby, here we go. I probably ought to just let go.
But I ask my heart this question.
The damn thing keeps sayin', "No!"

Half the time I don't know what to do.
Why can't love be an easy way?
Instead we're left to struggle through
in all the games that Cupid likes to play.

Maybe this or maybe that.
Maybe maybe never was.
Or maybe maybe's answer from the start
was maybe not or just because.

Hey there baby, maybe I'm just too stupid to understand
that I'll never hold ya close to me.
That's the way that it's been planned.

Hey there baby, here we go.  Can't ya give it just one time?
Or am I not allowed to retrospect?
Instead I'm left to be a mime.

Half the time I'm livin' life the last.
I'm lost alone without a clue.
The rest I'm in reality
wonderin' what I'm gonna do.

Maybe here or maybe there.
Maybe I'll never understand
what it is that's just so bad
to where I'll never hold your hand.
