understatement

When I say you complete me I don’t say it to be cute. I don’t say it to be a cliche couple. I don’t say it because at that very moment I feel so in love with you. I don’t say it because I want to find true meaning to the statement. I say it because you do, you complete me in ways that are unexplainable. You complete me in ways I never knew to be possible. You complete me in ways that I never knew could ever be accomplished by another human being. And when I say you complete me, it is an understatement.

I’m sick of smiling
And so is my jaw
Can’t you see my front is crumbling down
I’m sick of being someone I’m not
Please get me out of this slump

I’m sick of clapping
When I know I can do it better for myself
I’m sick of waiting
Sick of all these words that will never matter
I wired these nerves together
Hoping for a chance to think on time
And I’m tracing over your letter
To see if your intentions are as good as mine

But you’re getting worse (uh huh)
I swear it
It’s hard to prove you’re an understatement
You’re getting worse (uh huh)
And I know
You’ll be calling, calling, calling me again

I’m done with everything
That had to do with you
Don’t worry, your pictures are already burned
I’m done with new friends
Don’t sell yourself short
You’ll lose it in the end

I wired these nerves together
Hoping for a chance to think on time
And I’m tracing over your letter
To see if your intentions are as good as mine

But you’re getting worse (uh huh)
I swear it
It’s hard to prove you’re an understatement
You’re getting worse (uh huh)
And I know
That you’ll be calling, calling, calling me again

(go)

I can’t help how I feel
No I can’t help how I feel

But you’re getting worse 
I swear it
It’s hard to prove you’re an understatement
You’re getting worse
And I know
You’ll be calling, calling, calling me again

calling me again!
calling me again!

But you’re getting worse (uh huh)
I swear it
It’s hard to prove you’re an understatement
You’re getting worse (uh huh)
And I know
You’ll be calling, calling, calling me again

So, I live in Queensland, Australia, and we currently have a little bit of a cyclone problem.  Last night, Cyclone Marcia, which as then a category 5, made landfall close to this coastal town.  Plenty of property damage, but good news is I’ve not heard of any deaths, thanks to early warnings, and Marcia is currently a category 2.

Tonight, the news went like this:

News Presenter: So you stayed in your house last night, rather than evacuate to a shelter, what was it like?

Resident who now has his neighbour’s roof in his yard: *shrugs* bit windy.

Presenter: Bit windy? I’d say so mate.


Shout out to everyone effected by Cyclone Marcia. Hope you stay safe and dry.
