Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Lisa Loeb

Song lyrics aren't supposed to be a fountain of perfect english, but on the other hand some are just so atrocious, they need to get called out. We're not looking for sentance fragments or the word ain't since there are too many instances to count.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics, Lisa Loeb

Cake and Pie album at
Lisa Loeb's, "Stay (I Missed You)"
The Lyrics:
You say I only hear what I want to And you say I talks all the time-so And I thought what I felt was simple And I thought that I don't belong And now that I am leaving Now I know that I did something wrong cause I missed you Yeah, I missed you And you say I only hear what I want to I don't listen hard I don't pay attention to the distance that you're running or to Anyone, anywhere I don't understand if you really care I'm only hearing negative, no no no - bad So I turned the radio on I turned the radio up And this woman was singing my song The lover's in love and the other's run away The lover is crying cause the other won't stay And some of us hover only waiting for the other who was dying Since the day they were born-well Well, this is not that I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown And I thought I'd live forever but now I'm not so sure You try to tell me that I'm clever but that won't take me anyhow Or anywhere with you And you said that I was naive And I thought that I was strong I thought "hey I can leave, I can leave" But now I know that I was wrong cause I missed you Yeah I missed you You said "you caught me cause you want me And one day I'll let you go" You try to give away a keeper or keep me cause you're know you're just too scared to lose And you say, "stay" You say I only hear what I want to.
Is the relationship happening in the present or the past? I don't know, and apparently, neither does Miss Loeb. Yikes. "You say I talks all the time,so" "I'm only hearing negative, no no no-bad" "but that won't take me anyhow...."
