Sound Oysters – Couldn't Be You lyrics

You can never be rich
If I always stay poor
If you take up the bed
I'll make one up on the floor.

You can never be right
Unless you think that I'm wrong
You will always be weak
If I never am strong

I could never be you
You could never be me
And that's the one thing on which you and I agree
If we don't have a trial there's no need to go free
You keep being you and I'll be me

You can never be big
If I make you feel small
You'll never put me on hold
If I don't answer the call

If you never enlist
You'll have to skip your desert
If you don't give me a kiss
I can never be hurt
