Do you remember when she pulled her curtains down? Spat upon their satin folds atop the ground Why’d she buy them, who convinced her what she really needs Are silky blinds to hide the neighbor from her dirty deeds When’s the last time that she left a filthy mess The place was rocked, the people shocked, but she felt less Like she was fulfilling some role given long ago She’s lost her mind, well maybe she’s just let it go From time to time, everybody loses it Once in a while, we’ve got to drop the ball Sometimes I need to close my eyes To take in nothing, nothing at all She goes into art museums, and just stares Wonders if she’s really happy standing there She can be pretty, can be tough, she can be convincing Lets quit it with the definitions, she’s somewhere in between

I should tell you I should tell you I’ve fallen hard You don’t seem to be bereaved its just another card Fallen down, but the face looks concerned Cause I’ve been thinking every day About our blessed boon Carelessly given away Carelessly given away I’m just tryin to justify my breathing I will warn you I will warn you It’s proven hard To find an up without a down And not grow cold Oh the times they call for a change of life Cause I’ve been grieving every day For our blessed boon Carelessly whittled away Carelessly whittled away

Don’t know how I got to be this wary But being sure is far scarier Than floating along know not where to go I just follow it down The path goes far beyond the river And promises are never delivered At the right time though they’re dying to be spoke And in the towns Across the world we will leave all our secrets And bit by bit I’ll break into pieces Till the time feels right to take in a good thing And after all what am I avoiding Just to be sure I endure all my misadventures I want my broken despair I want to feel my scars Its not about regrets We need to figure out who we really are Cause love like this is so uncommon And why can’t you see that’s my problem I’m not trying to be unfair There’s just a ticking in my head that says I have to disappear somewhere

Dream about you playing to me softly It makes me smile to think that they come true I’ll get you here at last, but it goes so fast and it always ends too soon When will you make your way across the water To show your face amid this growing pool I’m wanting to go on but I’m weak and strong when it comes to you I couldn’t prove it to you, I couldn’t prove it to you Though you’ll thank me soon What is right and what is wrong I can’t tell All I know is I don’t have a clue It’s heartbreaking to see that its you, not me, that knows just what to do So play before me like it was the last time Break your strong and they’ll come back anew Our time hasn’t passed, but I want this to last so believe in me and you I couldn’t prove it to you, I couldn’t prove it to you Though you’ll thank me soon

The leaves are on the ground A Final resting place The clock is tocking and while I’m walking the wind blows on my face Oh the days fall off, its too late what I hear And in hindsight, I would’ve loved to bite, one of them apples this year Too much time on the phone, Too much time in bed Too much drinking, and useless thinking messin up my head And days gone by, its too late what I hear And in hindsight, I would’ve loved to bite, one of them apples this year Oh I’ve missed another chance, got regrets in my ears In hindsight I would’ve loved to bite, one of them apples this year The apples gone to rot The leaves all gone to brown The sky in snowin and hell is blowing up this stinkin town Oh the days are short, too short what I fear And in hindsight I would’ve loved to bite, one of them apples this year

Roll the ground out under me Word is there in the meaning All is lost to the air Shake the floor of the stage Croon your voice in its rage Touch my face, I’m still there Kill the light I’m still there Unaware When the song is done And the words are waste Just a warm white echo In a vast vast space Fear is death your dying in your sleep Dream your dreams, never take a leap Time is never your friend But rushing’s never what I meant Take a breath When the song is done And the words are waste Just a warm white echo In a vast vast space
