Guster — Two Points For Honesty lyrics

Chorus:

If that's all you will be
You'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind
Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all

I want to be where I've never been before
I want to be there and then I'd understand
Know I'm right, and do it right, could I get to be like that?
How to know what I don't know, nothing more to gain

Will I get better or stay the same?
I find I always move too slowly
Can't lift a finger, can't change my mind
I never knew till someone told me that

Chorus:

If that's all you will be
You'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind
Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all

And all the people who've seen it all before
And all the people who already understand
Know their right and done it right and could I get to be like that?
How they know what I don't know, it's harder everyday

Can't lift a finger, can't hurt a fly
I find I always move too slowly
One thing's for certain, I'm insecure
I never knew till someone told me that

Chorus:

If that's all you will be
You'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind
Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all
They never cared at all.
