lyrics

And since my head’s still in the clouds, and regret’s a passing fad
I don’t need to compromise for something that I never even had
And I probably never will, I am stranger than you think
I can live inside a fantasy while all the while I’m edging to the brink

And I know you have something dull to say
And I know you will say it anyway
You say I must be woozy or lonely
It’s like accusing me of suicide, accusing me of carelessness of heart
When care is all I’ve got
Yeah, it’s ripping through the floor
Yeah, it’s churning up the earth that might surround the house that we will one day sit in growing old
And I’ll sing the notes all flat
I will pelt them at the walls
‘cause I am barely seconds from resolving that it’s hardly worth anything at all

And so by now we’ve come full circle,
So by now they moan as usual
They say ‘Why? Why us?’, They say ‘Why? Why us?’
They scream ‘Why? Why us?’, They scream ‘Why? Why us?’
And since my head’s still in the clouds, and regret’s a passing fad
I don’t need to compromise for something that I never even had

And I know love is meant to drive us all
And I know all is fair in love and war
And so I’m sorry that it bores me
Yeah I’m sorry that it bores me
Yeah, I’m sorry that it bores me
Yeah I’m sorry that it bores me

You say I must be woozy or lonely
It’s like accusing me of suicide, accusing me of carelessness of heart
When care is all I’ve got
Yeah, it’s ripping through the floor
Yeah, it’s churning up the earth that might surround the house that we will one day sit in growing old
And I’ll sing the notes all flat
I will pelt them at the walls
‘cause I am barely seconds from resolving that it’s hardly worth anything at all
And you tell me that’s enough
That I am made of stronger stuff
I dashed in on a whim to find you standing there and you were setting fire to love
As if anything I say
Should be taken to the fray
And called upon as wisdom when I am just one big throwaway phrase
