“Hard to Explain” by The Strokes

I say the right things but act the wrong way. I like it right here but I cannot stay.”

Was an honest man
Asked me for the phone
Tried to take control

I don’t see it that way

Oh, we shared some ideas
All obsessed with fame
Says we’re all the same

Oh, I don’t see it that way
I don’t see it that way

Raised in Carolina
“I’m not like that”
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I missed the last bus, I’ll take the next train
I try but you see,

I like it right here, but I cannot stay
I watch the TV; forget what I’m told
Well, I am too young, and they are too old
The joke is on you, this place is a zoo
“You’re right it’s true”

Says he can’t decide
I shake my head to say
Everything’s just great

Oh, I just can’t remember
I just can’t remember

Raised in Carolina, she says:
“I’m not like that”
Trying to remind her
When we go back

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
