lyrics

I was all finished growing.
You were close, but not plateauing.
Those winter nights, those frigid nights.
I thought our breath would be showing

Because most times, your eyes,
say that which your mouth cannot.
Those little things that your tongue forgot,
but it's okay, it's okay.

And you called, you called my bluff.
When I said enough, enough was enough.
And you could see I was just acting tough.
You drew my outline and it didn't seem rough.

And you took my left hand,
my right was dangling on like an old rubber band.
And this all seemed so unplanned,
but please don't misunderstand.

Because some times I find
that I say that which I should not.
Those petty things I should've forgot,
but it's okay, it's okay.

And sometimes I will doubt.
If it's all worthwhile or if I should hide out.
But more often I will doubt.
If it's I whose worthwhile, or considered a lout.

But you just smiled, smiled and said.
Darling, you can't carry all of this dread.
It's your limitations that will put you ahead.
Just don't be a fool, help one instead.

Most times, your eyes,
say that which your mouth cannot.
Those little things your tongue forgot,
but it's okay, I forgot too.

And you considered me to be brave.
But I'm just a boy whose known to behave.
And I can do a few little tricks, I can dig myself a grave.
Or I can follow a sheep to the mouth of a cave.
