Lyrics[]

Baby, you’re makin’ me crazier than I am
So lately I’ve been takin’ my violets, my oranges, my reds
Take the gun and put it to my head
So I forget, so I just forget again
You make me forget again

And baby, you’re makin’ me make up all my own plans
What’s a girl to do when everyone looks bright?
Nothing to forget about that don’t turn to night
What’s a man to do when nothin’ isn’t right?
Like to say, like to say, “The future don’t look bright,”
