The leaves came down when you walked by them all year round
It’s like a chandelier, it’s like a fountainhead
Oh, an incurable humanist you are
You can’t enjoy yourself, I can’t enjoy myself
He was laying somewhere else
Are you working up to something? But you give me almost nothing.
I say awake all week and still I wait
I can’t get out of what I’m into with you

You’ve been acting different, I’ve been told
I was criticized for letting you break my heart
Wishing the ones that we adore loved us more
There’s a flood on my lungs in the breeze
Salt my wounds, chlorine my eyes,
Everyone barks and they are all still believing
To tear out your heart would send all your secrets to me
Though I’m a fool at least I know the score
