lyrics

“two trains sitting side by side” :
your metaphor is relevant but wrong
and i — well i know i’ve done you bad
i didn’t want to fall back like i always do.

you’ve got a smile that i can’t shake
and i’ve got a truth i cannot hide
we sweat under lights, under alcohol
i wish i had bitten both our tongues

well i got what i wanted but i didn’t get under your skin

so cut me in half and affix me to your body
(and then when you’re done cover me up)
you’ll move away to the other side of the country;
i will recover and fall back.

you once had hands like a body of water:
come in, and recede, and turn to ice.
you said that i was “stuck in my ways”
but i wasn’t stuck:
i just wasn’t trying to play nice

i got what i wanted, and when i wanted to i took flight.
