Lyrics

He told her when they met that he had never been a worrier
She loved his easy confidence and air of devil may care
She said she was a planner, that details were like a drug to her
He thought she was making a joke and that she was adorably self-aware

The pair of them proceeded to head off on a romance
Each compensating for the other’s minor quirks
But soon he grew more distant and then she got very tense
‘Cause opposites attract but after that
Nothing works

He tells her to relax, although he knows she never can
It’s the battle of troubleshooting woman and avoidance man
She shields her eyes as she sees the shit approach the fan
Singing the ballad of troubleshooting woman and avoidance man
Mmmm…
Mmmm…

She imagines everything up to its obvious conclusion
Extrapolates the outcome and knows just what to expect
He relies on spacing out in overwhelmed confusion
Blaming on his brain what’s really intentional neglect

She tells him that a mole ignored can still be melanoma
He counters stress alone can cause a cancer underneath
He says ignore your troubles and they might just disappear forever
She replies that that is only true
Of teeth

He tells her to relax, although he knows she never can
It’s the battle of troubleshooting woman and avoidance man
She shields her eyes as she sees the shit approach the fan
Singing the ballad of troubleshooting woman and avoidance man
Mmmm…
Mmmm…
Mmmm…
The ballad of troubleshooting woman and avoidance man
