Yo La Tengo – Don't Have To Be So Sad lyrics

You and me
Were at some goldfish pond
And I
I was tagging along for the ride
This ugly big-mouthed fish really made us laugh

And while I stood still
I felt a chill
I thought that maybe you did too
I wanted to feel that way forever

And that's why
If you're looking at me
I'll try
To be what you want to see
And if I
If I'm ever that lucky
You won't have to be so
You won't have to be so sad

Last night
I was trying to read in bed
I got to watching you sleep instead
Even when I got tired I couldn't stop
Because I love you so
And I pray you know
But I'm not one for praying
You knew I couldn't say that without making a joke

And that's why
If you're looking at me
I'll try
To be what you want to see
And if I
If I'm ever that lucky
You won't have to be so
Won't have to be so sad...
