Don't Ask Me to Explain - Of Montreal

How will I ever know you enough to love you
If you're hiding who you are?
Don't ask me to explain
Who are you hiding you from
Across the table with a penny in each eye?
Don't ask me to explain

I'd like to marry all of my close friends
And live in a big house together by an angry sea
Am I the devil's marbles?
Don't move on without me
Who will be watching my body when I sleep?
Who will I believe in?

How am I supposed to let it show
When I don't even know?
Don't ask me to explain
Besides, I don't want to be
The one who's coming out first
I'd really like to, but I'm just too shy
Don't ask me to explain

I'd like to marry all of my close friends
And live in a big house together by an angry sea
Am I the devil's marbles?
Don't move on without me
Who will be watching my body when I sleep?
Who will I believe in?

It's so easy to lie to myself
And pretend that I could love you
But I can't
