you close your eyes and kiss your hand then you blow it.
but it isn’t meant for me, and i notice
if the choice was ours alone,
then why’d we both choose letting go?
does it end like this?
time never had a chance to heal your heart
just a number always counting down to a new start
if you always knew the truth
then the world would spin around you
are you dizzy yet?
respectfully, so honestly i’m calling out
do you hear the conversation we talk about?
back away to the safety of a quiet house
if there’s half a chance in this moment
when your eyes meet mine, we show it off.
all talk and not a lot to think, we were living dreams
and shame never crept close to our naked feet
if there’s something left to lose,
then don’t let me wear out my shoes
i’m still walking.
i tried, but it rang and rang, i called all night
on a payphone, remember those from another life?
if everything i meant to you,
you can lick and seal then fold in two
then i’ve been so blind.
oh, oh take it all back, take the first, the last and only.
oh, oh take it all back, take it all back,
everything you showed me.
oh, oh this must be how it feels when the feeling goes
i told you as i hovered, i never felt this way
you said i have the shot that stops my clock
baby it’s ok
you said you’d never have regrets
jesus, is there someone yet
who got their wish; did you get yours, babe?
