Lyrics

   Mickey Rourke (Boogie) and Ellen Barkin (Beth) in Diner (1982)
    "...when we were dating, did you care for me?"
    "Sure, I did."
    "Not because you could do stuff to me...but because you really cared?"
    "Of course, Beth. I mean...there was plenty of girls around for a quick pop...
    ...if that's what I wanted...but I got to tell you...you were good."
    I can't believe that what I fear is finally happening to me
    Make it hurt
    And point the finger at my insecurities
    Well I guess I just don't understand about those complexities in your mind
    And I guess I just don't understand why this world seems so unkind
    
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming to me
    
    So once again the way you feel will never ever stay the same
    And I'm to blame
    I wonder just who made the rules up for this game
    Well I guess I just don't understand about what you want and what you need
    And I guess I just don't understand about why this is how it has to be
    
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming to me
    Oh
    
    "He sat down on this bed and he said, 'Christ, what the hell do you think this place is?'
     You know, he just couldn't believe it! And I said, 'I don't know but it sure is something 
     different.'"
    
    So go ahead
    You say those thousand things you think you have to say
    Look at me
    And tell me love's not such a hard word anyway
    Well how can you count on me?
    I thought you realized for sure
    And how can you just believe?
    I thought I deserved a little more
    
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming to me
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming
    Maybe, maybe just once, I could get what's coming to me
    
    What's coming to me
    What's coming to me
    Oh God
    Oh, what's coming to me
    What's coming to me
    What's coming
    Oh God
    What's coming to me
