i saw my better half
the better half of a decade
slip through my hands inside her hands inside my pockets
when she reached for her advatages i should have done something
i saw my baby boy digging his own hole
keeping alive family traditions
when he lied about intentions i should have done something
i blame myself for everything
it keeps my conscience clean
i've got bandages to prove it
if i gave everything would you still listen to me?
it could be so much better than this
i don't want you to love me anymore...
i can't be held accountable if you can't make up your mind
as much as i would like to
i can't put my hands all over you
if i put myself in that position myself to be immune to you
to keep my heart from breaking if you can't make up your mind
if i came home one last time
think of what the two of us could do
i guess we'll never know
if i tried
would you still call me son?
if i tried
would you call me at all?
if i say that i'll go regardless of what you want me to do i'm better off without
i'm better off without you
if i change my mind it won't be soon enough for you
but i'm not you
i'll try to compromise for you to see that there's
so many other things for me to find out
run myself to the ground
would you please forgive me if i found my way back home?
everything i see
everything i do
everywhere i've been
these mean nothing to you?
Don't Hate Me
forgive me for runningoff to find the one things i have to do
each night you can fall asleep assured that someday
i'll be comeing home to you
these constant reminders in everything i see
the chance of a lifetime...
what a great place to be
don't hate me for running away from you
don't hate me
i'm still in love with you
i'm sorry i can't be everything to you
your place is at the heart of what i do everything's for you
every time i run away
it's easier to stay
at the heart the hearts is you in everything i do
Michelle With One 'L'
same hold from the same hands
five years strong
many times over and gone
it's everything that i have to beat bridges much stronger and wide
fewer and farther between we meet againg
i'll try to do well on my own
distance between's never been this far
i realize that this time was something that i always knew
only a fool wouldn't see
might as well start my drinking days now if i'm really alone
am i asking too much to keep you at arms length?
am i asking too much to keep you at home?
please don't go
i know it's all gonna be fine and i know that this is what's right
Last Place You Look
the grass is always greener as i'm sure that you've found
if i find my way back on the last leg of this trip
i'm betting i'm finding you there
as long as it's constantly changing
as long as it's constantly sound
if there's no sense of impending danger
there's no sense in hanging around for the winter
if i'm not gonna be in your arms around me...
what have i got if you're there?
we'll behome in December
the leaves don't fall from the trees as long
as you remember you are always with me
it's not my place to find it
not something that i get to choose
don't be scared 'cause you're not something i'm willing to lose
i'll bet you find it in the last place you look
