lyrics

Your jeans are way too tight and your sweatshirt's got a christmas tree
under that's a full back tattoo of your powder blue fixie
and it's not because you like these things: it's a joke only hipsters see.
I wish I'd known you looked at love with that same philosophy

I have been such a fool how did I not see
that you only love me ironically

You love my nerdy glasses -- but I need them to see
and it's not a matter of image that I got a job at the library
no I actually like star trek that was not supposed to be funny
and I'm not pretending when I act like I don't have any money

I have been such a fool how did I not see
that you only love me ironically

this realization came after a time of great reflection
noticing all you own and do has a strange off-tilt perfection
how do I fit in to your "ugly stuff" obsession
I am just an accessory in your irony collection

I have been such a fool how did I not see
that you only love me ironically

I'm not going to tell you I'm leaving -- it is long past time to desert
and I can't look into the sad sad eyes of the kittens on your t-shirt
without any real feelings I know you won't be hurt
call me up if you find the real world and finally want to convert

I have been such a fool how did I not see
that you only love me ironically
