This track inadvertently contains the album title; at least, the "i like you" part. It totally comes from a place of affection; that kind of affection you might feel when you see all the affectations of your acquaintances and/or friends, know something about where they're coming from from personal experience, probably think they're a bit silly, and realize that it changes nothing in you, because you're already completely sold on them. Because they're alive. Because they're trying. Because they're divine.


Why do you
Try to make me
Believe in you
When patently I already do…?

Your efforts
To be cool are cute but
They’re winning you no extra
Points with me…

Cause I like you
The truth is simple
Sometimes and you are

Why do you
Try to impress me
With all that you say
When all that you do
Is already on display?

And all that you do is beautiful
And all that you are is precious
And all that I see when I look at you
Is true…

Cause I like you
The truth is simple
Sometimes and you are

Why do you
try to make me
believe in you
when patently
I already do.
