Don't you need to
Be back in the arms of a good friend?
Oh 'cause honey believe me
I'd shouldn't have to call you my girlfriend.

David Duchovny's out of line
It's hard to even like this guy
And I'm beginning to think
Baby you don't know.

In a world that's ugly and a lie
It's hard to even want to try
And I'm beginning to think
Baby you don't know.
