Little Bit Xtra (Deader Than Me)

Little Bit Xtra

it’s that little bit extra
that je ne sais quoi that makes me hit myself
it’s that little bit extra
that drives me to drinking all night

it’s that little bit extra
that je ne sais quoi that i permit myself
it’s that little bit extra
that makes you so hard to like

i was a little bit anxious
a little bit nervous to express myself
was a little bit anxious about how to win your love
i was a little bit anxious about all the yelling the night before
was a little bit anxious about being bold enough

i’m gonna sail down the river
i’m gonna dive to the bottom and swim
until the sun is rising red
i’m gonna steal that sunlight
i’m gonna box it up and keep it in a jar inside my head

it’s that little bit extra
that je ne sai quoi that we reserved for you
it’s that little bit extra that left us all crying all night
it’s that little bit extra
that je ne sai quoi that i permit myself
it’s that little bit extra that makes you so hard to like

Sometimes good intentions and love can be smothering or otherwise misconstrued.
