She says that I'm not enough
How would you know?Oh, the measure of a man is to hold his breath and see how far he can go
Are you watching closely, are you breathing this in? A pose imperfect is
probably a political plan, repeat, the plan is probably a plea to repeat the
pose, indeed indefinite effort is effortlessly imposed upon the cost of
living like it is not worth living and if it is not worth living then I guess
you could put your money back in. My priest gives (me) proverbs in prose
and my pretend friend don't know whether when coming or going you're
ever gone for sure. And I get rude but I get by unseen and I know that
you never saw what you said, but now you know what I mean, I hope you
figure this out, I hope you bend when I sway, I said "Forever" but I never
mean a word that I say.
She lies under every kiss I made to you, it should be obvious, obvious,
obvious that I never do anything but wander 'bout my name, it should be
obvious obvious, obvious you're not ready.
Slow it down, slow it down now, but don't you ever calm it down now
We're broken numbers trying to keep on fixifyin' like batteries gone dry
but still we keep on twitching crying. Remember way back when I called
you a friend? And now your phone don't never work but still I try it again
I muh muh muh mumble when you come in too close, so kuh keep your
fingers for fumbling less familiar clothes, just like the dressing up tongue
that puts the question to test: whether divesting is better than simply
getting undressed. And I get rude; I get by unobserved and I know that
you never saw what you said but now you know what I heard. I hope you
figure this out, I hope you bend when I sway, I said "forever" but I didn't
mean for ev-er-ee day.
She lies un-der every kiss I made with you, it should be obvious, obvious,
obvious that I never do anything but wonder why I stay. It should be
obvious, obvious, obvious you're not ready.
For you. Lover. I'm not. Ready. You're not. Ready. Are you?
Gimme the keys to your world, drown by your love or I'll drown here
Good intentions on my tongue, wave goodbye to everyone
Gimme the keys to your tower, saved by your love or I'll set me a-fireCount my blessings underserved, wave goodbye to planet earth
Gimme the choices I've left, a broken heart hardly defines a regret
Let me go or show me how to live, am I messing this up too?
I don't know, I don't know, but I think so, I don't know I just don't know,
but I think so.
Don't move a muscle 'cause I ain't finished yet, I said I love you but I'm
prone to forget, I hope you hate me when you figure this out, I said
"forever" but forever's in doubt
