If you died for me, that wouldn't really be creative, now would it?
Don't you think I'd rather be with a man who can handle a rattlesnake or a biker gang?

If you died for me, I think I'd make a miserable widow
Do I look like the kind of girl who wants to spend her Friday nights with ashes in a locket?

If you want to impress me, if you want me to fall hard,
Don't you die for me

You think I'm beautiful? The most beautiful... ever?
Have you never seen fresh snow falling in the woods, or a Raphael in a museum?

You think I'm hot! Well I might be at the moment.
Will you still think so when I lose the race between my metabolism and these brownies?

If you want to impress me, if you want me to fall hard,
You'd better do better than beautiful

You say that no one will ever love me like you do
If it makes you feel better, I'll admit on a level that's chemical, molecular, cellular... technically that's true.

I was meant for you? Tell me more about your notions of free will!
Was I placed on this planet to fulfill some requirement for you to be happy?

You were meant for me? I don't recall anybody asking
My criteria and weighting for the qualities I'd like in a lover... this year

If you want to impress me, if you want me to fall hard
Don't say I was meant for you!

Less country than Robbie Fulks, less rock-and-roll than Steve Poltz, less uninhibited than Rhett Miller, less political than Billy Bragg, less fastidious than Josh Ritter... something for every clever song lover!
