lyrics

Like a shot in the dark through the still of night
Into the heart of a matter we just can't hide
Whispering throught the hours of the country side
That we're completely lost in

The shape takes hold but can't conform
To your feminine curves that bend towards
My terrified body stiff as a board
Like a dead man walking

And I'll keep trying to fold my arms forever
But then all I'll ever do is just sit and wait
For a fool like you
Too often lost in abandoned lots trying to find a love escaped
But I'll just patronize the need
So as not to fall too far towards grief
Abuse these makeshift eyes to please
A fool like you
Crazy enough for me

I stare from a chair at the bed you've made
The walls lean close but can't engage
With my thoughts scattered all across the human race
Until I beg your pardon

So bless this mess that I can't console
Trying to lead it along with a ten foot pole
A darling little anecdote pigeonhole
That my big head's caught in

And I'll keep trying to fold my arms forever
But then all I'll ever do is just sit and wait
For a fool like you
Too often lost in abandoned lots trying to find a love escaped
But I can't rightfully receive
This holy moment I can't complete
Lift it up to the faceless sky to free
A fool like you
Crazy enough for me
