Ampersand by Amanda Palmer


I walk down my street at night

The city lights are cold and violent

I am comforted by the

Approaching sounds of trucks and sirens

Even though the world's so bad

These men rush out to help the dying

And though i am no use to them

I do my part by simply smiling

 

The ghetto boys are catcalling me

As i pull my keys from my pocket

I wonder if this method of courtship

Has ever been effective

Has any girl in history said

"sure you seem so nice let's get it on"?

Still i always shock them when i answer

"hi my name's amanda

And i'm not gonna live my life

On one side of an ampersand

And even if i went with you

I'm not the girl you think i am

And i'm not gonna match you

'cause i'll lose my voice completely no

I'm not gonna watch you

'cause i'm not the one that's crazy"

 

I have wasted years of my life

Agonizing up at the fires

I started when i thought that to be strong

You must be flame retardant

And now to dress the wound's cause into question

How authentic they are

There is always someone criticizing me

"she just likes paying hospital."

Lying in my bed

I remember what you said

There's no such thing as accidents

But you've got the headstones all ready

All craved up and pretty

Your sick satisfaction

Those his and hers matching

The daisies all push up'n

Pairs to the horizons

Your eyes full of ketchup

It's nice that you're trying

The headstones all ready

All carved up and pretty

Your sick satisfaction

Those his and hers matching

The daises all push up'n

Pairs to the horizon

Your eyes full of ketchup

It's nice that you're trying

 

But i'm not gonna live my life

On one side of an ampersand

And even if i went with you

I'm not the girl you think i am

And i'm not gonna match you

'cause i'll lose my voice completely no

I'm not gonna watch you

'cause i'm not the one that's crazy yeah

 

As i wake up two o'clock

The fire burned the block

But poetically stopped at my apartment

And my housemates are all sleeping soundly

And nobody deserves to die

But you were awful adamant

That if i didn't love you

Then you'd have just one alternative

 

And i may be romantic

And i may risk my life for it

But i ain't gonna die for you

You know i ain't no juliet

And i'm not gonna watch you

While you burn yourself out baby

No i'm not gonna stop you

'cause i'm not the one that's crazy yeah

I'm not the one that's crazy oh yeah

I'm not the one that's crazy
