Lyrics: 

I was having this discussion
In a taxi heading downtown
Rearranging my position
On this friend of mine who had
A little bit of a breakdown
I said, “Hey, you know, breakdowns come
And breakdowns go
So what are you going to do about it?
That’s what I’d like to know”

You don’t feel you could love me
But I feel you could

It was in the early morning hours
When I fell into a phone call
Believing I had supernatural powers
I slammed into a brick wall
I said, Hey, is this my problem?
Is this my fault?
If that’s the way it’s gonna be
I’m going to call the whole thing to a halt”

You don’t feel you could love me
But I feel you could
You don’t feel you could love me
But I feel you could

I was walking down the street
When I thought I heard this voice say
“Say, ain’t we walking down the same street together
On the very same day?”
I said, “Hey Senorita that’s astute”
I said, Why don’t we get together
And call ourselves an institute?”

You don’t feel you could love me
But I feel you could
You don’t feel you could love me
But I feel you could

I was having this discussion
In a taxi heading downtown
