Well, you say that I treat you like a book on a shelf
I don't take you out that often 'cause I know that I completed you
And that's why you are here, that's the reason you stay here
How awful that must feel

You said you would be my dream, I could have you every night
And if by morning, I'd forgotten you, well, no big deal, that'd be all right
'Cause you're the reoccurring kind, you are the reoccurring kind
You never really leave my mind

Are you the love of my lifetime? 'Cause there's been times
I've had my doubts, we were just kids when I first kissed you
In the attic of my parents house
And I wish we were there now, it took so long to figure out
What this book has been about

Now, I write when I'm away, letters that you'll never read
You said go explore those other women, the geography of their bodies
But there's just one map you'll need, you're a boomerang you'll see
You will return to me

You will, you will, you will, you will, you will, you will
You will, you will, you will, you will, you will
You will, you will, you will, you will, you will, you will
You will, you will, you will, you will

'Cause if you don't then this book's all lies
If you don't then my plans would all be ruined
If you don't, I'll start drinking like the way I drank before
Oh, and I, I just won't have a future anymore
