Too Bad

by Doug Midgley and John Ashcraft

It's too bad we could never satisfy each other

I could have loved you anyway

Now it's too bad we always disappoint each other

It's too bad we have to look the other way

And it's too damn bad that a feeling so strong

Could be countered in so many ways

And it's too, too bad we see everything's wrong

And let our love remain lost in the haze

And let our love remain lost in the haze

You can't cope with whatever I do 

And you make it impossible for me to handle you

And days gone by attract my eye

And I think I should stay but you make me cry

And I wonder why we couldn't stop

And let each other only be lovers

Without having to go out of our minds

All of this intensity 

Is me drawn out of you

I return to sensibility 

When I'm through

It's too bad we could never satisfy each other

I could have loved you anyway

Now it's too bad we always disappoint each other

It's too bad we have to look the other way

And it's too, too bad we can't get close to each other

And still let each other be free

Yeah, too bad, too bad

It's too, too bad

We can't let each other see

Yeah, it's too bad we just can't learn from the other

And let each other be free

And help each other see

It's too bad we could never satisfy each other

I could have loved you anyway

It's too bad we always disappoint each other 

It's too bad we have to look the other way

And it's too damn bad that a feeling so strong

Could be countered in so many ways

And it's too, too bad we see everything's wrong

And let our love remain lost in the haze

And let our love remain lost in the haze
