Violent Femmes – Confessions lyrics

People worry
What are they worrin about today
Seems like there's a good reason
To worry worry worry
I'd sit around listening to you story
If I wasn't in such a
Hurry hurry hurry
And I'm so lonely
I just don't think I can take it anymore
And I'm so lonely
I just don't know what to do
And I'm so lonely
Feel like I'm gonna crawl away and die
And I'm so lonely
Feel like i'm gonna
Hack hack hack hack it apart
Seems like there's a good reason to be
Lonely lonely lonely
I gotta get someone or something
To make me feel less
Lonely lonely lonely
I know I could do it
I know if I wasn't so
Lonely lonely lonely
Have we got an army
We'll teach you how to act like to act like a man
Have we got an army
Man I mean to tell you we can fight
Have we got an army
And were gonna do it tonight
Do do do it tonight
Yeah they're gonna
Pay pay pay pay it tonight
Do do do it tonight
People worry
What are they worrin about today
People worry
Na you see I've learned my lessons
And I don't even want to here about your confessions
