Was I? Are You?

This song is by Barr.

In the midst of tripping out about everything
I realized I don't know what I'm doing
Tried to hit, I mean, hit the town like a ton of bricks
Hit a few sparks a little too hard, maybe it was too much

A little bit uncomfortable, a little bit sad
Kind of, I mean it was
But a little bit confusing, even sort of mad
But still kind of ramped on the drum and ambiguity

I don't know how to do this so I'll be upfront
I'm kind of worthless right now due to circumstance
As anything more than a person just to sleep with

I can't be a boyfriend but I promise
To be a considerate one-night stand
Well, I said that once and it really didn't work
Even though I meant it but I guess
I don't really know anyone who wants to hear that

Well, maybe, I don't really mean it
'Cause I like people too much
Even if what I have to offer is not really enough
Or anything more than

You say you don't care
Your needs are pretty much the same
You really don't want to date
You really just want to hang out
You two don't get attached
And I just can't either

Okay, great but it seems too good
And I feel a need to reassert that the
Uh, you know, my batteries are drained
And goods are damaged mine
I'm in need of that and that

Maybe this whole thing I did was naive
And hurtful to approach you but
It really seems like you're not tripping but then
I start seeing stuff that's kind of not even there

I'm bugging out, like, hey, what's up?
Um, I know it's casual but, uh
Are you screwing my friend?
Um, wait, I guess it's all okay
We're all friends and so, uh, you know

We're all just friends
But if you two are doing it, I wonder
Like is he asking the same?
I'm sorry, though it's really none of my business

You could do, oh, you're not even doing that?
Okay, no, you wouldn't, I'm sorry
Never mind, um, okay, uh
