The Lyrics

About how the process for this song probably was
I gotta take a little time, a little time to write the lyrics
I only got to write 10 lines, and then repeat them until you’re sick

Now two verses I must write, and they don’t have to be too long since
I’ll sing the chorus 10 times, it reassures through repetition

As I write there’s severe mental strain
I can’t write any more lines again
Must stop now, it took me so long, to write what I’ve got now

How do I pad this song out? I’ll repeat the chorus
I gotta string this song out, although it may bore us

I gotta take a little time, a little time to finish this up
I’ve got nothing left to write, hope this doesn’t sound like we’re washed up

As I write there’s severe headache pain
I don’t know if I can write words again
I don’t know what I will do now, Repeat the bridge part too?

How do I end this song now? Just go on repeating
The radio will love it, I hope it’s not boring
I want to finish this up, I’ve run out of ideas
(I want to sing it) I want to sing this song now
(And I know) No matter, they love me

Let’s keep repeating, I'll just repeat the chorus
I’ve just got no more inside, I want you to help me
Can you write some more lyrics? They’ll get sick of hearing this
No, you just won’t write, Can’t write me more lyrics
I want to sing more lyrics (some more to work with), Can’t you write any more?
I want to end this song, I’m so sick of repeating
I’ll have to sing this live, and I don’t want to be, always just repeating
Repeat this in my dreams, I’m so sick of singing this
