lyrics

I said “I like your hat”
“I like your face”
my face was smudged and dirty
I saw your eyes and I thought
that maybe this was something
but you probably
drink too much
need too much
love too much
or not enough, and I
think too much
give too much
want too much
or not enough
and I'd leave you someday
I couldn't stay
I'd leave you someday
I couldn't stay

there always was
some comfort in
knowing how to love him
now that he's gone
what's to be done
with this useless information?
cause you know he'd
drink too much
need too much
love too much
or not enough, and I’d
think too much
give too much
want too much
I always knew that I'd
leave him someday
I couldn't stay
I'd leave him someday
I couldn't stay








I wake up now
all anew
don't want what I used to
now I've come to mourn the loss
of the many things I'd clung to
find that I can pick them up
and hold them close
then I let them fall
and watch them go
and I see them on
the ground below
but there's still one thing
I long to hold
and I'll find it someday
and I'll wanna stay
I'll find it someday
I'll wanna stay...

I said “I like your hat”
“I like your face”
my face was smudged and dirty
I saw your eyes and I thought
that maybe this is something...
