Lyrics

You want me to go but you'll miss me when I'm gone
You want me to go but you'll miss me later on

You're not independent, you're not even strong
You need someone like me or you won't get along

You want me to go but you'll miss me when I've left
You're time will be slow, you'll be feeling bereft
You're life will be empty, you're life will be strange
People like you are allergic to change

Some people miss
And some people kiss
And some only cry when they have to

You want me to stay but you'll leave me in a while
You want me to stay but you'll leave me then you'll smile

You know that you can be a child round me
Giving that up is like what you call free
And a glass can't drink itself you know

You want me to go but you'll miss me when I've gone
You want me to leave but you'll miss me later on

Or someone else like me I don't even care
The point is my friend you need somebody there

Some people kiss
And some people miss
And some only cry when they want to

I can't help it, I'm a negative
I can't help it, I'm a relative
And the glass won't drink itself you know
