There's a week where I remember What it felt like to be lovin you Accidentally nostalgic All these words fit in my hand still People listen to the radio And to subtleties we're sending out Spheres of influence are sloppy now Setting boundaries with your TV As I watch life go, I try to lose control Make mistakes and learn to love them Sex on repeat, middle of the street Wanting you, wanting now In uncertain times before I knew you well I tried to notice when you felt bad Often, I was wrong -- I would guess and chase the truth A softer substance than you show me now I'm asleep inside a tide pool I'm alone in a wood paneled room We're alarmed but understanding More alive with every moon that's full Everyone can read my mind Leaving me exposed to loving Making it easy to fall for you I can let go of your hand now
His touch is void Won’t deceive me Harm free Inside back out Stretching to the ceiling Too loose a tie Ends are wearing To lean, to be A resource to depend on He keeps far from My diary page three Is blank to keep Hounds from reading Rewrite the lines Ruin the ending The verse, it sticks Empathy to blind curves Wasn't built into that timeframe See the distance getting better Unconditional understanding Take out screen door weather permits
Wound Tight 04:17
Nearly a year, inside of my head, A voice says, "Why so confident? Your flawed reason's so short-sighted, and it seems like you have no base, no sense of foundation." Wanting someone who knows me well. Diss my natural style and ask me to be unimpeded -- that makes it hard for me to truly open. A mean voice says You can do better A man's voice says Give me the guitar A mean voice says I play it better A man's voice says Why'd you write that song I was hurt, I was split down the middle A dead dead dead tree, hit by lightning Coming back slowly from paralysis I'm sure I will heal, because I want to A mean voice says Stop trying to make jokes A man's voice says You don't have to make jokes A mean voice says I don't think you get mine A man's voice says You act like you're on drugs It was dark, it was shadowy, scary A dead dead dead dream, very frightening A time when I believed the words he used to cut me down I want to heal and write songs again I noticed My anger Out of focus And silenced Tension Stiffness Brought forward From shoulder blades Out through my throat Out through my nose Nostrils flare Course through deeply Thorough anger Thorough outrage Thorough temper Thorough courage
