tonight we’re gonna give it 35%
we drank bottled water together and talked business.
i think i played the right moves.
you were lookin’ over my shoulder,
as i went through the motions of another night,
and it was alright,
’cause i thought i knew who everybody was just by lookin’ at them.
my heart is anywhere but here,
and how tired i was from the past couple of weeks,
from the past couple of years.
well, it hit me all at once,
on a balcony overlooking nothing,
with snow falling all around,
well i, i called just to say “goodnight”.
and you hadn’t done anything wrong,
and know, really, really, it’s me not you.
i can’t believe how naive i was to think things could ever be so simple,
and can you live with what you know about yourself,
when you’re all alone, behind closed doors?
the things we never said, but we always knew were right there.
it’s got me on my knees in a bathroom,
praying to a god that i don’t even believe in,
“well, dear jesus, are you listening?
if this is the one chance that really matters,
well, don’t let me f-ck this up.
if you’d told me about all this when i was fifteen,
i never would have believed it.”
