You say he's not right for me But you don't know him like I know him You say there's no warmth to him But you don't see him when we are alone I can't love somebody like you Just because you want me to You say he only brings me down You must be up real high to get that view You say he doesn't love me But how can you know for sure that you do I can't love somebody like you Just because you want me to

we wait for the light to turn back on we feel we feel like we can always go back home that the light on the porch will guide us through familiar steps we peer through the hole we carve in the board we name all the shapes we are drawn towards that the light from the sun will draw pictures with the shadows from what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself we hold up the lines we impart on white page we move with the weight and the glow of old ages and the light in both states will guide us through the darkest space we are born of the thoughts 
we exist then narrate we are fashioned to forms by where they are created and the light from the sun will remind us where we started from what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself

i have a weakness for boys who ain’t right and i have a cry so quiet they can’t hear it at night sometimes he comes home he don’t say hello i feel like I’m not here when you don’t tell me so I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go
 you like to break things down to their core well i don’t think that i can be broken down anymore i think i’d be bigger without you i see myself so small coz it’s your eyes i’m looking through I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go you don't linger when i lean in for a kiss
yeah i knew love was hard work but i wanted more than this even if the distance isn’t me i’m the one who’s drowning when i try to cross that sea I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go I know I know that I should go

ten to six didn’t sleep a wink morning’s cold bones frozen stiff you’re getting old work hard boss complaining ‘bout jews and chinks any talk is about the game you paint every surface in the room it all looks the same You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright Maybe you’re right babe Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you home round three to dirty dishes an over crowded house to left out margarine so you give the kitchen a quick clean too tired to read laying on your bed and take a nap holding the Lawrence you got from Kate you’re trying not to sleep to late You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright Maybe you’re right babe Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you try not to fall asleep on the highway try to keep your car a little tidy try to keep your mind from letting go you listen to the radio Bigsy gives you a smile you’re always trying to be better in the middle of the shit saving for a a place but we’ve only got a bit when you’re not too tired you have a play on the guitar You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright Maybe you’re right babe Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you I’ll always keep on this light

I see your pretty side I see it oh so bright I run up and down the street till I light the night But what if you're not who you said you were? I see your pretty side Cynosure of my eyes I display up and down the street till they all take flight But what if you're not who you said you were? You are just what I made you You are just what I made you Not who you said you were Do you see all my sides Caucus who cannot decide On the backs of all these inaccurate daydreams I ride Till I'm not sure who you said you were Is this my pretty side? To see all pretty sides I run up and down the street till I light the night But what if we're not who we said we were? You are just what I made you You are just what I made you Not who you said you were You are just what I made you You are just what I made you Not who you said you were No you're not who you said you were No you're not who you said you were

how could i forget how nice it is to lay around the house i haven’t had a moment to myself and the time it flies so fast oh - a moment just to be in my quiet company
