lyrics

I’ve been letting myself think and letting myself sink in quicksand
Two things I should never do
I can’t help but think that you’ve done me wrong
Though you’ve been so kind to me for so long
Well, let’s spell out the truth
All week, I’ve planned to tell you give in or cut me off completely
You beat me to the latter punch
I find words waiting for me everywhere
Every dream I’m handling with care
Another needle holds itself in place

I stare into the eyes of Morocco and perhaps on their coastline
Someone feels it on their shoulder
I work myself into a panic, as if crawling into the attic
To get away from the house
And now the dream needs revisions
Needs an outsider’s opinion
A public surrender
I work myself into a fever, cracking up in front of mirrors
And thankful for reality

I’ve had all that I can take today
And to jar it up for the next day
I’ve had all that I can take today
And to jar it
It’s so jarring

I’ve been letting myself think and letting myself sink in quicksand
Two things I should never do
I can’t help but think that you’ve done me wrong
Though you’ve been so kind to me for so long
Well, let’s spell out the truth
All week, I’ve planned to tell you give in or cut me off completely
You beat me to the latter punch
I find words waiting for me everywhere
Every dream I’m handling with care
Another needle holds itself in place
