Father John Misty – The Ideal Husband Lyrics

Julian
He’s gonna take my files

Every woman that I’ve slept with1
Every friendship I’ve neglected2
Didn’t call when grandma died3
I spend my money getting drunk and high4
I’ve done things unprotected5
Proceeded to drive home wasted6
Bought things to win over siblings7
I’ve said awful things, such awful things8

And now
Now it’s out
And now
Now it’s out9

Julian
He’s gonna take my files

Telling people jokes to shut them up
Resenting people that I love10
Sleep in ’til two then doin’ shit
Just stay in bed and later lie ’bout it11
Obsessing over greying hair12
Knowing just what people wanna hear
Binging on unearned attention13
I’ve said awful things, such awful things

And now
Now it’s out
And now
Now it’s out

I came by at seven in the morning
Seven in the morning, seven in the morning
I came by at seven in the morning
I said, “Baby, I’m finally succumbing”14
Said something dumb like “I’m tired of running
Tired of running, tired of running”
Let’s put a baby in the oven15
Wouldn’t I make the ideal husband?16
