lyrics

Could you melt
Stained glass windows
To bond those
Faith
Laden dreams
You once saw me
Decompose?

You
Were fine
With killing time
(but) I am not
That kind of guy
I
Have learned
To read the signs
Shade your eyes
And your mind
So I can take what’s mine

But I’m not sure I’ve ever seen
A room spin out and land between
The space we made so you could see
Just how much you mean to me
I’ve written you a helpless plea
To leave addressed to family
A tender, heartfelt call to ease
Just how much you mean to me
Of all the people you could please
Each to differing degrees
You can silently appease
Just how much you mean to me
If I find you are twisting lead
Hanging rope or planning deeds
I’ll make sure the world believes
Just how much you mean to me


You
Were fine
With killing time
(but) I am not
That kind of guy
I
Have learned
To read the signs
Shade your eyes
And your mind
So I can take what’s mine

You
Were fine
With killing time
(but) I am not
That kind of guy
I
Have learned
To read the signs
Shade your eyes
And your mind
So I can take what’s mine
