Make my plans
Watch them fail
Try again
Must prevail

One by one
They return
Make my bed
Now I burn

Couldn't have sent anybody any better
Couldn't have said anything to you
Couldn't have sent anybody any better
I know I said I knew, I knew
Couldn't have said anything to you

Finally, one less thing to bother me
Check and see for signs of life
Tennessee, well you're nothing but a memory
But I know, never say goodbye

Crooked teeth, well that's all that stands in front of me
When I see the mirror shine
If you'll please excuse the haste in getting here
Because I know wouldn't get another try

There's a fall
And a rise
And you know how to get by
And we go
About our lives
Like one long day and night

Actually, I never thought we'd get to this point
Entropy, gravity, and all the rest
And you see when it's gone it's gone for good
So let's not go, let's not go, let's not go
Just let it go for this one time

There's a fall
And a rise
And you know how to get by
And we go
About our lives
Like one long day and night
Like one long day and night
Like no one else alive
Like one long day and night

That grass is getting brown beneath your feet
It always seemed so green this side of the street
Just got to have it or you feel incomplete
The other side of the street the restless don't sleep

All I needed was to have a little fun
Show you I'm not made of stone
And there are failings that you could learn to love
And all you needed was to have a little fun
Go out amongst those bramble briars
Get your dress snagged, but you would come on home

I'm so sick of trying to leave
Can't you see it's pointless to be
So persistent
So resistant
If the truth is such a hard thing to hold
Why are you endlessly pleading for me to convince you
So you can just breathe it in

I'm sinking fast, I'm sinking deep
I don't know why I can't get on my feet
I hold my breath
Heaven hold me
I don't know why I can't get on my feet

It's amazing how much changes
And how much stays the same
Watch the waves wash away sandy shores
But how much still remains

I know that there's something there but there's something missed
I thought that I saw it all but I only caught a glimpse
That's the problem with a light like this
It sells your eyes the smooth, false images

It's amazing how much changes
And how much stays the same
Watch the waves wash away sandy shores
But how much still remains

I never want to be the one who's so convinced
That I've got an answer wrapped up in bows and pretty prints
Packaged neatly by the scientists

Because you don't know what you don't know
And the unknown keeps being unknown

It's amazing how much changes
And how much stays the same
Watch the waves wash away sandy shores
But how much still remains

I'm not sure if you'll remember
But I'd like to forget
Our memories are faulty
They're chemicals at best

I wanted more
I wanted to be so much more

I'm sure we will embellish
The finer points and details
Mull over, mull over
The mental souvenirs

I wanted more
I wanted to be so much more
I'd like to forget
I wanted more
I wanted to be so much more

You deserve more
I wanted to be so much more

Can't you just admit that you were
Can't we just have one moment of

Can't you just admit that you were
If I never said anything you could never take it the wrong way
Can't we just have one moment of
If I never take anything there's never a chance I won't pay
I won't pay

There's a hole, an imperfection where the smoke creeps in
It chokes my lungs because it fills the spaces where the air had been
If we were to speak with honesty
I can't breathe, I can't see

Can't you just admit that you were
If I never said anything you could never take it the wrong way
Can't we just have one moment of
If I never take anything there's never a chance I won't pay
I won't pay

There you are and here I am in a doorway stance
Arms are crossed, eyes are locking in a threshold dance
If we were to speak with honesty
I can't breathe, I can't see

Slipping the string of the kite out
Defying the gravity
Watching the world from the lighthouse
Get swallowed by the sea

Can't you just admit that you were
Can't we just have one moment of

The unknown magical purpose of what brings us here to love
I'm still trying to understand the higher laws, the master plan
All I know is that I found you, this is the truest of the truths
Okay not to comprehend in how we arrived, the means, the ends

There's something I can't put my finger on
Your eyes are as bright as the morning sun
They shine like the gold on the horizon
Away

There is a wonder inside of me
I am a child that is still learning that the energy that you give is reflected back and it pulls you in
You are standing there bathed in light, a piece of the grand design, a piece of the master plan
And how we got to this place and now we're hand in hand

There's something I can't put my finger on
Your eyes are as bright as the morning sun
They shine like the gold on the horizon
Away

Little one the pieces fall all around your head
When you jump out of the water into bed

We'll all fall to pieces when you make your effort there
Comfort comes in quickly and the thoughts all lose their sted
When you jump out of the water into bed

Congratulations you made it
Congratulations you made it
When you jump out of the water into bed

It's a slow drift but the current here is solid and it will drag you in
Well you can start to feel you have lost control of your body
It's involuntary

I try and I try to get out of my head but I'm sinking in deeper
I'm falling in

It's a long way when you set your sight on horizon but your feet are concrete
Disappearing
Dear me, I wish I was just disappearing

I try and I try to get out of my head but I'm sinking in deeper
I'm falling in

Stand five feet back from myself and I'm looking in horror
As I'm saying something that I know isn't appropriate
And I blame it on my awkward human nature
Try and I try to get out of my head but I'm sinking in deeper

I've got this terrifying feeling in my head
It's made a home and found its way into my bed
Permeating all we've done and said
A shade of green, a tinge of red

We got what we came here for
I am not believing it anymore
But was it what we deserved

There is no concentration, it's a useless mess
The whole entire situation is a wreck
And I've got no one to blame except myself
A shade of green, a tinge of red

We got what we came here for
I am not believing it anymore
But was it what we deserved

Go on believe whatever it is you will believe
That's where the circumstances take you with their lead
Fell in a hole the echo keeps playing on repeat
All been a wash in a shade of green

We got what we came here for
I am not believing it anymore
But was it what we deserved

So long dear, so long
So long dear, I'm going
The day's getting wasted so I'm moving on

In summer we were lovers from the seeds planted spring
But when the leaves change their color you said you'd see differently

So long dear, so long
So long dear, I'm going
The day's getting wasted so I'm moving on

The winter, oh the winter, with its cold and its snow
Makes that summer feel much further than it ought to you know

So long dear, so long
So long dear, I'm going
The day's getting wasted so I'm moving on
