lyrics

We argue so predictably, I’m always in the wrong
I can only hold at bay my failures for so long

I’m not afraid of standing still
And letting good things come to me
But too long in one place and I
Contract assorted misery

It’s weeks since I’ve been into work
But still I leave the house each day
To cash in all my tapes and books
Guitars that I no longer play

And with the spoils, bought a car
Just like the one I drove in school
When everyone’s left for the day
I’ll pack a bag and steal away

And as the sunset in my mirror
Eventually disappears, so have I

A sudden change of altitude and the car died in the snow
A week after I got to town, I found work behind a bar

A young man takes a shine to me
He thinks that I’m a mystery
A puzzle he can figure out
So I’ll oblige him, naturally

So now we share a place downtown
A room above a restaurant
We both couldn’t be happier
Says I’m exactly what he wants

What they want from me is a mystery
They think that I’m much more than what they see
But I seem secretive when I just remain quiet
Not again, he’s pissed, he’s crying

He says “I’m scared that you’ll have vanished
When I open my eyes
As if I’d been kissing you goodbye all along”
