"TIMID HEARTS"

Timid Hearts

Once you told me having someone there was the key. Once, it could be anyone. Now itís always me. But the cold is tense, and it hurts you. And it all makes sense that I canít help you. Once you told me having someone there was the key. Once, it could be anyone. Now itís always me.

When you hear your friends accuse you of awful things, you assume that theyíre true. And when you hear people laugh, you assume itís at you.

The older I get, the more I understand that there is no plan. You hang all your hopes on a skinny boy from a broken home. A way to retreat to your bedroom and not feel alone.

When you hear your friends accuse you of awful things, you assume that theyíre true. And when you hear people laugh, you assume itís at you.

Words will always fail us. Give me your timid heart anyway. Time will always laugh at us. Give me your timid heart anyway.

There are not now and there will never be enough arms in the world to hold you tight enough. There is not now, and there will never be enough love to make you feel loved.


You Think You're Clever

I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning. I can fight any fight that Iíll win. I can hear any words that echo my own feelings. I can care as much as I want to. A car at the riverfront, a glassy reservoir, and it keeps on coming back. I promised you not at home, but it keeps on coming back.

I can wait forever as long as I know Iíll get it. Iíll be kind when youíre kind to me. I can help when it doesnít inconvenience me to do so. I can listen when it pertains to me. All this time, you read my mind. So Iím not so clever after all. It fades with time. It slips my mind. Oh, Iím not so clever after all.

Your health, your home, youíd lay it all down for me. Any money youíve ever had, your life, youíd lay it all down for me.

I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning. I can fight any fight that Iíll win. I can hear any words that echo my own feelings. I can care as much as I want to.

My health, my home, Iíll lay it all down for you. Any money Iíve ever had, my life, oh Iíll lay it all down for you.

All this time, you read my mind. So Iím not so clever after all. It fades with time. It slips my mind. Oh, Iím not so clever after all.


Just Smile And Play Along

So sew it up and note the time. The loose ends meet, the couplets rhyme. A stack of applications on your nightstand. Not exactly as you planned.

I know that look upon your face, the mirror in your eye. I know you lie awake at night and feel his breath on you and wonder why.

You wake up to the news at noon. Or you wake up to the afternoon chat shows. The degree hangs on the wall of the apartment thatís to small to hold the couch you hauled all the way from Pittsburgh and then left on the curb.

Now your friends donít bother calling you. That moment they would have to talk to him to get to you is more, so much more than they can stand.

You wake up to the news at noon. Or you wake up to the afternoon chat shows. You brother said heíd visit you. Your cousin said she meant to. Youíre hoping they will do the work and you can just smile and play along.
