Robyn Hitchcock – I Wish I Liked You lyrics

I wish I liked you
Enough to be my friend
I wish you liked me
Enough to be my friend
I think of you and shudder
When we meet I just pretend
You'd be a lovely person
If you were someone else
You'd be a lovely person
If you were someone else
You're uncomfortable to be with
You don't even like yourself
You want to be offended
You're arrogant and vain
The only thing that cheers you up
Is someone else's pain
And you moralise
Yeah you moralise
You make me feel guilty
As if I owed you one
I'm always trying to appease you
As if I owed you one
Well I'm gonna have to work on that
I owe you nothing
Nothing at all
Cause if you've done me any favors
They were double-edged and cold
You didn't do them out of love
You just wanted to get some kind of hold
I've got your number
But I never call you back
I've got your number
But I never call you back
You've got some thick-skinned friends
Maybe they'll call you back
Your eyes glaze over
Every time somebody that's not you speaks
Your eyes glaze over
Every time somebody else speaks
Upstairs something howls
Outside something shrieks
I wish I liked you
Enough to be my friend
I wish I liked you
Enough to be your friend
I think of you and shudder
I hope we never meet again
