Clothes strewn across the lawn She sat naked on the dock She told me that she was waiting for something And I would have to keep her company She says she's going to leave me now But I know she left me long ago The articles I never published They lay stacked upon my desk She told me the words don't make the man And that the fame meant even less She says she's going to leave me now But I know she left me long ago I'm not sure that I believed her But she was so intent in what she said That a thousand letters couldn't paint this moment No matter what they said (read) She says she's going to leave me now But I know she left me long ago But as I always do, I tried To capture the moment in verse

Well it just so happens that I have all of the answers Right here in the palms of my hands And I can do as I choose with them I can clap them away, or bury them deep in the sand Well it just so happens I found you here in the dirt Molded you from clay Underestimated your power To steal my emotions away You were king of the heap You were in way too deep You were kicking up a fuss to wake us out of our sleep And tell all us fucks To eat your bloody dust You were weak Well it just so happens I found us a secret to be proud of It's a word I like the meaning, I like the power, I like the sound of And it's teasing me Everyday I want to use and abuse it It conjures up beauty and I know that you are amused by it Cuz you were king of the heap You were in way too deep You were kicking up a fuss to wake us out of our sleep And tell all us fucks To eat your bloody dust You were weak

She's down and deep caught kissing in a dream Where nothing isn't never not what it doesn't seem She's being pulled down by the undertow Of a life composed, she floats upstream And when the dreaming stops, she don't wanna let go Cuz the real her is someone she don't wanna know And the real world already sold her out All she has left is the afterglow And she don't think this is the end-all and be-all The music is better in her mind She can't see through her hindsights & shortfalls To see what it is that she left behind She's a visionary and the world is her play But the beautiful dreams don't make the pain go away And when she awakes, the drugs don't fill the void Her hindsights & shortfalls bring her back to today Yeah her hindsights & shortfalls bring her back to today Her shortfalls remain, they don't ever go away Her dreams are too short and they don't fill the void She reaches out for them anyway Yet she don't think this is the end-all and be-all The music is better in her mind She can't see through her hindsights & shortfalls To see what it is that she left behind

Do this When will I end this blissful life? What will I most miss when I jack-knife? In my winter Hinterland beyond Sunny summer, always latecomer Allow me this one grace I'm not yet ready to lose face Allow me this one grace I'm not yet ready to lose face Is it high time I met my maker? I may be a faker in the midst of the real thing Am I a giver or a taker? (faker) Nothing so disappointing Nothing made you join me Join me Allow me this one grace I'm not yet ready to lose face In the arms of all my foes Are all the mistakes I ever made Who knows what'll happen in my winter? In my winter? Who knows what'll happen in my winter? In my winter? Allow me this one grace I'm not yet ready to lose face In the arms of all my foes Are all the mistakes I ever made

In my wildest fantasies You never changed your plans for me And now the moment's come and gone Finally, my memory's strong It was everything I expected of you And nothing I could have foreseen Why do these moments come back? Why do they come back to the same theme? Feeling left out in the cold It was something I never could have told you The moment I wanted to re-capture But you're still waiting for the rapture I could have met you halfway You still wouldn't have changed If you had, I wouldn't have stayed I won't be the one to blame Feeling left out in the cold It was something I never could have told you The moment I wanted to re-capture But you're still waiting for the rapture I still recall the lines on your face I all these memories I can still taste As you lay naked in my arms I traced the outline of your back, doll Feeling left out in the cold It was something I never could have told you The moment I wanted to re-capture But you're still waiting for the rapture

If you saw it coming From a mile away Would you say you didn't, just for old time's sake? If it makes you angry, would you name any names? Would you falter if you knew what's at stake? He didn't make you who you were Maybe you made me who I am And you say it's raining But only in your backyard And everything's fine You just took it too far When I was with you Before you gone away Before you changed Your simple ways The prize was worth more than what you paid Tell me it mattered anyway And all my idioms Were lost on you And all your smiles Were when I turned my shoulder And all our crying Done behind closed doors Not together Never holding one another He didn't make you who you were But maybe you made me who I am That's the price you pay I always paid It's the price you pay We'll always pay It's the price you pay We'll always pay It's the price you pay It's the price price Price price you pay He didn't make you who you were Maybe you made me who I am

That's the price you pay I always paid It's the price you pay We'll always pay It's the price you pay We'll always pay It's the price you pay It's the price price Price price you pay He didn't make you who you were Maybe you made me who I am
