Portland Songtext
Don’t you wanna know me?
The way I wanna know you
Got several hundred stupid things
That I wanna show you

I punched out all the windows
Just to get some light
So I can give you everything
It keeps me up at night

To think that I want someone
That only wants a ghost
I would drop everything
And drive up the damn coast

Portland has nothing
Especially not me

How am I supposed to sleep tonight?
I need to know
Do I ever cross your mind?
No way I’m gonna sleep tonight
I need to know
Do I ever cross your mind?
‘Cause if you’re up in Portland
That means I’m alone
And all these selfish feelings
Are stupid, yeah I know

Like elevator music
Turned up way too loud
Screaming like a big dog
Just to drown you out

I’ve been getting lonely
I feel it in my chest
Cause people didn’t want me
Now I’m your second best

I call the 1800
They told me to go home
I begged them to stay on the line
But they hung up the damn phone

I’m sorry that I’m so weird
I’m sorry I’m a creep
Someone tell me what to do
When a feeling cuts this deep

How am I supposed to sleep tonight?
I need to know
Do I ever cross your mind?
No way I’m gonna sleep tonight
I need to know
Do I ever cross your mind?
‘Cause if you’re up in Portland
That means I’m alone
And all these selfish feelings
They’re stupid, yeah I know

If you’re up in Portland
That means I’m alone
And all these selfish feelings
With all these selfish feelings [x5]
