impossible to love, impossible to love
maybe i’m impossible to love

if i am a princess, i’m either a jill on the hill
or i’m a jill in the box, unconscious
to the knocks of my love
obnoxious oblivion - i’m so sorry, hon

but what’s it gonna take to make it to the hill?
i wanna be that kind of jill

if i am building to something
it’s either a bridge or a wall
and if it’s a wall, it’s not my fault
i’m a brick pig - i’m addicted to suffering

but what’s it gonna take to build that bridge?
i wish i could tell you, kid

taking more than you give, that’s no way to live
having all that you have and not giving a damn

impossible to love, impossible to love
what if i’m impossible to love?

if i am a soldier, i’m either the bomb or a blank
and i oughta thank my lucky scars
that you’re friendly

got a tank full of white flags
and i’m not afraid to use ‘em
as long as you refuse ‘em
i treat my friends like enemies

but what’s it gonna take to end this war?
don’t even know what i’m fighting you for

taking all that i throw, that’s no way to go
seeing all that i am and not giving a damn

could i be a worthy girl? you seem to think so
you think i’m a worthy girl and not a sinkhole

impossible to love, impossible to love
you say no one is impossible to love
