Lirycs of

Alanis Morissette – I was hoping

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

as we were taking outside it was cold we were shivering yet warmed by the subject matter
my wife is in the next room we´ve been having troubles you know please don´t tell her or anyone
but I need to talk to somebody
you said «wouldn´t it be a shame if I knew how great I was five minutes before I died I´d be filled
with such regret before I took my last breath» and I said «you´re willing to tell me this now
and you´re not going to die any time soon»
and I said I haven´t been eating chicken or meat or anything and you said yes
but you´ve been wearing leather and laughed and said we´re at the top of the food chain
and yes you´re a fine woman and I cringed
I was hoping I was hoping we could heal each other
I was hoping I was hoping we could be raw together
we left the restaurant where the head waiter (in his 6-?s) said «good-bye sir thank you for your business sir you´re
successful and established sir and we like the frequency with which you dine here sir
and your money» and when I walked by they said «thank you too dear» I was all pigtails and cords
and there was a day when I would?ve said something like «hey dude I could buy and sell this place so kiss it»
I too once thought I was owed something
I was hoping I was hoping we could challenge each other
I was hoping I was hoping we could crack each other up
I too thought that when proved wrong I lost somehow
I too once thought life was cruel
it´s a cycle really you think I´m withdrawing and guilt tripping you I think you´re insensitive
and I don´t feel heard and I said do you believe we are fundamentally judgmental? fundamentally evil?
and you said yes I said I don´t believe in revenge in right or wrong good or bad you said
«well what about that man that I saw handcuffed in the emergency room bleeding after beating his kid
and she threw a shoe at his head
I think what he did was wrong and I would?ve had a hard time feeling compassion for him»
I had to watch my tone for fear of having you feel judged
I was hoping I was hoping we could dance together
I was hoping I was hoping we could be creamy together
