Not Nice

Sometimes I’m nice but when I’m not nice, I’d rather you leave me alone.


Not Nice by Chris Garneau (from his album “Music for Tourists”.)

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

It’s always so clear.
You never really hear at all
And I fear that you won’t get better.

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’d rather leave you alone.

You’ve been quiet for so long.
If something was wrong, you’d never say a word,
So I know that you won’t get better.

That’s your fifth drink.
Don’t you think that’s a lot?
Considering we’ve only been here for a little while now?

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

Sometimes you’re nice but
When you’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.
That’s all.
