The Strokes – Hard to Explain

[Verse 1]
Was an honest man
Asked me for the phone, tried to take control

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

[Verse 2]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
Raised in Carolina
I’m not like that
Trying to remind her
When we go back

[Chorus 1]
I missed the last bus, I’ll take the next train
I’ll try, but you see, it’s hard to explain
I say the right thing but act the wrong way
I like it right here, but I cannot stay
I’m watching 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

[Verse 3]
He said 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

[Pre-Chorus]
Raised in Carolina
She says
, “I’m not like that”
Trying to remind her
When we go back

[Chorus 2]
I say the right thing but act the wrong way
I like it right here, but I cannot stay
I’m watching TV, forget what I’m told
Well, I am too young and they are too old
Oh man, can’t you see, I’m nervous, so please
Pretend to be nice so I can be mean
I missed the last bus, we’ll take the next train
I’ll try, but you see, it’s hard to explain
