Sick Of Me - Ani Difranco

how sick of me must you be by now?
while you're standing just outside of
what your pride will allow,
always reaching into yourself
to find a new way to understand me.
when i'm sure that there's no one else in the world
that could withstand me. yeah,
the first person in your life
to ever really matter is saying the last thing
that you want to hear. and you are listening hard
through the splintering shards of your life as it shatters.
and you're standing firm and you're staying close
and you're seeing clear.
i took to the stage with my outrage in the bad old days
when you were the "make me mad" guy.
but the songs they come out more slowly now
that i am the bad guy. and i say,
baby i'm sorry that i am so crazy,
i am astounded by your patience.
but you say/ "believe or not baby,
the joy you bring me still outweighs it." yeah,
the first person in your life to ever really matter
is saying the last thing that you want to hear.
and you are listening hard
through the splintering shards of your life as it shatters,
and you're standing firm and you're staying close
and you're seeing clear.
tell me how sick of me must you be by now?
