Negative love
Skeptical lies beneath the frown
Negative love
You’re always putting other people down
Then they’re gone
As they fade away well who’s to say that you were wrong?

Negative love
The radio’s playing my request
Negative love
You lie before me unimpressed
Why say yes?
When you know all the ways to say “no” best?

Please don’t make an exception for me
Don’t make an exception
There’s no hope for me and you
‘Cause I’m a little negative too

Cynical you
I see the look that’s in your eyes
Cynical you
And it’s saying I don’t sympathize
No surprise
Only the naive believe in love and other lies and

Please don’t make an exception for me
Don’t make an exception
There’s no hope for me and you
‘Cause I’m a little negative too
I’m a little negative too

We’re the wrong side of one
I should change my name to John (?)
Or maybe we’re onto something
Could we end up positive after all?

Please don’t lower your standards for me
Don’t lower your standards
There’s no hope for me and you
‘Cause I’m a little negative too

There’s nothing for me and you
Cause I’m a little negative
I’m a little cynical
I’m a little negative
I’m a little critical
I’m a little negative too
