It's Not by Aimee Mann

I keep going round and round on the same old circuit
A wire travles underground to a vacant lot
Where something I can't see interrupts the current
And shrinks the picture down to a tiny dot
And from behind the screen, it can look so perfect

But it's not

So here I'm sittin in my car at the same old stop light
I keep waiting for a change, but I don't know what
So red turns into green, turning into yellow
But I'm just frozen here on the same old spot
And all I have to do is press the pedal

But I'm not

No, I'm not

Well people are tricky
You can't afford to show
Anything risky, anything they don't know
The moment you try, well kiss it goodbye

So baby kiss me like a drug, like a respirator
And let me fall into the dream of the astrounaut
Where I get lost in space that goes on forever
And you make all the rest just an after thought.
And I believe it's you who could make it better

But it's not

No, it's not
