The Lyrics

This could be the reply for "Dear Miss Melissa Dunn". This is about how exam stress is driving the both of us crazy, so basically it's her explaining why she is so diligent, and why I'm so slack (or maybe we strive for perfection in different domains). Heard the original song hours after I talked to her, so it was rather rushed when the words got to me.
[Melissa tossed out a pile of refill papers rhythmically, while Rocky opened the book, then closed it again]

[Melissa]
Can't stop, can't understand it
I hate the way it feels
It got me stuck between hypocrisy and what is real

[Rocky]
I'll read it when I get it
I get it when I don't
Tell myself I'll start every day
Knowing that I won't

[Rocky]
I've got a problem and I...
[Melissa]
(Don't know what to do about it)
[Rocky]
Even if I did, I don't know if I could quit
But I doubt it. I'm,

[Both]
Taken by the thought of it

[Melissa]
And I know this much is true
[Rocky]
(I know it's true)
[Mellissa]
Exam, well you
[Both]
Have become my mind's affliction

[Rocky]
I'm so stressed out by you
[Melissa]
(Stressed out by you)
[Rocky]
There's too much to lose
And I need it

[Both]
So, then it's all because of you (all because of you)
[Rocky]
Even a C won't get me through
[Melissa]
(Why, what did you do)
[Both]
And it's all because of you (all because of you)
So, then it's all because...
Never get [understand] enough
We feel so damn bugged

[Melissa]
Fake exams, every second,
I can get nothing done.
Only concern is the next time, score of 91
Know I should stay away from,
A-grade's no good for me.
I try to strive for the perfection, won't let me leave.

[Melissa]
Life is a struggle and I
[Rocky]
(Don't know what to do about it)
[Melissa]
Even if I did, I don't know if I'll make it
But I doubt it I'm
[Both]
Taken by the thought of it

[Melissa]
And I know this much is true
[Rocky]
(I know it's true)
[Melissa]
Exam, well you
[Both]
Have become my mind's affliction

[Rocky]
I'm so stressed out by you
[Melissa]
(Stressed out by you)
[Rocky]
There's too much to lose
And I need it

[Both]
So, then it's all because of you (all because of you)
So, then it's all because of you (all because of you)
And it's all because of you (all because of you)
So, then it's all because...
[Melissa]
Never get [understand] enough
[Rocky]
(Never get enough, no)
[Both]
We feel so damn bugged

[Both]
(Ain't no doubt)
[Rocky]
No doubt
[Both]
(So strung out)
[Melissa]
Strung out, oh

[Both]
(Ain't no doubt)
[Melissa]
There isn't any doubt, oh
[Both]
(So strung out)

[Both]
Over you,
Got no clue, (cluuuueeeee)
What to do, (doooooooooo)

[Melissa]
Whoa

Because of you
[Rocky]
I'm alone because of you

[Rocky]
(Mm)
[Melissa]
(Never get enough)
[Rocky]
It is too damn tough
(Both)
We feel so damn bugged
