Mixed-Up Guy

Verse 1

I'm gon’ let you go now, angel
Though I could make you stay
I could use my blind self-pity
And throw it in your way
But the times have turned between us
And you know I don't believe
That it makes one bit of difference
If you stay, or if you leave

Chorus

Oh, why [why
Can't I be lonely [lonely
Like that lonely rushin’ river
Ah, that's pushin' down the mountain
On its way to meet the sea?
Oh, why [why
Can't I need someone [someone
Like that river needs that ocean?
Oh, why did you have to get so mixed-up, baby
With a mixed-up guy
[Mixed-up guy
With a mixed-up guy like me?

Verse 2

I'm gon' make it short now, angel
Though I could make it long
I could take you through the changes
And show you where you're wrong
But our dreams don't flow together
And you’ll never, never see the light
So it really doesn’t matter
Who is wrong, and who is right

Chorus

Oh, why [why
Can't I be lonely [lonely
Like that lonely rushin’ river
Ah, that's pushin' down the mountain
On its way to meet the sea?
Oh, why [why
Can't I need someone [someone
Like that river needs that ocean?
Oh, why did you have to get so mixed-up, baby
With a mixed-up guy
[Mixed-up guy
With a mixed-up guy like me?

[Ooh, ooh-ooh ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh]
