"Before I Do" by Nic Pfost

I'd rather be one jailbird
All my life on the run
Than two lovebirds in a house
In a cage in the sun
I'd rather be shackled in a straightjacket
In a padded room
Than spend my years in the bonds of love
With the likes of you

Chorus:
And I guess I should tell ya
Before we say I do
That I can't imagine
spending one more day with you...
One more day with you...

They say that love is all you need
But I need bread and water to live
They say love is a verb
I'll stick with nouns and adjectives
I'd rather the earth be stopped
And my body flung from the ground
Sent hurtling through space
Than hear one more time
That love makes the world go round

Chorus

I'd rather eat a shopping cart
Full of rotten eggs
I'd rather drink a carton of Clorox
Down to the dregs
I'd rather get a thousand paper cuts
On my ears
I'd rather have my lips and eyebrows
Taken off with shears

Than to spend one day, one hour, one minute, one more moment...

Chorus

One more day with you...
