Garfunkel & Oates – Only You lyrics

Riki: I used to dream that I would be
A bright and shiny star on tv
Kate: Or maybe I would go to college,
(Riki: like Harvard) or Devry
Riki: I would live in an apartment
Both: in Paris or in Cincinatti
Kate: I would play my music loud and not apologize

Riki: I used to dream that I would marry
Both: A guy that looked like Charlie Sheen
Kate: And he would have a name like Gary, (Riki:
Steve), Todd, (Both: David)
Riki: I used to think I'd have three kids
And they all would look just like me
Kate: And I would force them kids to carry all my
Groceries

We don't need no goals
Don't need human connection
Dreams are overrated
'Cause our life's already perfection

Now I know all that is true
Cause all I really want is you
You and you and only you
Me, you, me, you

Riki: I used to dream that I would have
A best friend named Michelle
Kate: And we would braid some friendship bracelets
Both: We would tell all of those other fucking cunts to
Go to hell
And when we're 60, we'd get facelifts
Like Joan Rivers (Riki: Burt Reynolds)

Riki: I used to think I'd have co-workers
And we'd stay out 'til two at night
Kate: And I would have a perfect body
(Riki: You do
Kate: I know)
Riki: I used to dream that I'd have s**
At some point in my adult life
Kate: And I was sure it would be naughty

We don't need no goals
Don't need human connection
Dreams are overrated
Cause our life's already perfection

Now I know all that is true
Cause all I really want is you
You and you and only you
Me, you, me, you, you
