lyrics

I cannot go, I hope you understand
Why my mind is like an ocean, deep and dark and deadly, out of my hands
I must be old, older than I planned
See all the worries that you wonder leave you undermined and under attack
And I can’t say why
‘Cause I don’t know

Let’s take this slow, give me both your hands, girl
See on the other side of town I know a Lady Casanova and she’s been damaged
Without moving forward there’s no peace in my head
I guess I made it very clear to you by saying that I missed her instead
As we laid in bed
We just laid in bed

I’ve got nothing to say
So save me for a rainy day, at least I don’t treat you well
‘Cause there’s nothing I’ve been giving away

Walking and waiting and wishing and weaning
And burning the pages of books I’ve been reading
I ran around the whole town just to see you in the evening
But the stars aligned and ceased to shine
All my pens are runnin’ dry, the day the night, you see why…

I’ve got nothing to say
So save me for a rainy day, at least I don’t treat you well
Guess the sun is settin’ here by the bay
All the while I’ve been running away
My friends and all my family are saying to make some plans
Yes, I’m sorry for the way that I am
