Lyrics to song I Was Hoping by Alanis Morissette

as we were taking outside it was cold we were
shivering yet warmed by the subject matter my wife
is in the next room we've been having troubles you
know please don't tell her or anyone but I need to
talk to somebody you said "wouldn't it be a shame
if I knew how great I was five minutes before I
died i'd be filled with such regret before I took
my last breath" and I said "you're willing to tell
me this now and you're not going to die any time
soon" and I said I haven't been eating chicken or
meat or anything and you said yes but you've been
wearing leather and laughed and said we're at the
top of the food chain and yes you're a fine woman
and I cringed I was hoping I was hoping we could
heal each other I was hoping I was hoping we could
be raw together we left the restaurant where the
head waiter (in his 60's) said "good-bye sir thank
you for your business sir you're successful and
established sir and we like the frequency with
which you dine here sir and your money" and when I
walked by they said "thank you too dear" I was all
pigtails and cords and there was a day when I
would've said something like "hey dude I could buy
and sell this place so kiss it" I too once thought
I was owed something I was hoping I was hoping we
could challenge each other I was hoping I was
hoping we could crack each other up I too thought
that when proved wrong I lost somehow I too once
thought life was cruel it's a cycle really you
think i'm withdrawing and guilt tripping you I
think you're insensitive and I don't feel heard
and I said do you believe we are fundamentally
judgmental? fundamentally evil? and you said yes I
said I don't believe in revenge in right or wrong
good or bad you said "well what about that man
that I saw handcuffed in the emergency room
bleeding after beating his kid and she threw a
shoe at his head. I think what he did was wrong
and I would've had a hard time feeling compassion
for him" I had to watch my tone for fear of having
you feel judged. I was hoping I was hoping we
could dance together I was hoping I was hoping we
could be creamy together
