lyrics

Location can’t be position specifically
It’s highly intrinsic, the way you were trained
I adore you so much that the floor you were on
Just fell out from the sudden decay
I don’t want to have to frighten or haunt you
I just need a costume for a couple of days
It might cost you but let’s move to a city
Where the major league teams are bad
So the tickets are cheap
And we can go to the games every day

I can’t let your spit dissolve my insanity
Can’t let your kiss chase my troubles away
If I heard you in the way I’d prefer to
You love me so bad that you can’t even say
But then really once you finally get near me
It’s “the love turned so bad that you just couldn’t stay”
If you tell me what you need I can check in the back
Where we keep all the good ones and I’ll drop it off on the way

I had no intention of leaving
That’s just a force of bad habit
Like how once you’ve been stabbed there’s no way to un-stab it
I thought that I’d beat you but it turned out
You reached out and grabbed it
Just before I could stand in your way

Well you blew it, you got the dust in the fluid
Which of course became ruined even though it was sealed
Like a melting pot that, believe it or not,
We let sit for so long that the damn thing congealed
So you had to go and pick at the scab you got
Seconds before it was perfectly healed
Now I hear you, it’s simply I’m never near you
It’s the same thing each time like a carousel in rewind
Or a four course meal

Now undo it, simply untape or unglue it
You can punch a hole through it and repair it with me
I got better running right through the center
Where the Curves and the video store used to be
Though before that in a much earlier format
It’s just an old floor mat, you wipe off your feet
Goes to show you that you’re soft to the touch
And I’m a tattoo you only got half through
Because you said it hurt you too much

Can’t we just assume that I’m learning my lesson
It’ll chew you up and swallow you
Or a better expression
I’ve barely begun then I’m done
I slow-danced to the last 30 seconds of Stairway to Heaven
