lyrics

Friday night, almost dawn,
Lights in the kitchen, everybody gone home.
Then here you come with your wings on wrong
Out of the bathroom, picking up this song.
Do you believe
The nights seem a little lonely lately?

Smell the lake—must be spring.
Lock my bike to a diamond ring.
Shade’s so cold, but the sun’s so hot,
Might get work done, then again might not.
Do you believe
The nights seem a little lonely lately?
Do you believe the days seem lonely too?

I know you’ve been hurt now
And you’re trying to let go.
You seem undecided about what to take slow.
I’ve used my best tricks up
Just trying to make good,
Like the sun between branches, sky on a river.

Wide asleep, fast awake.
Still no call. (I need it but it could wait.)
What I’ve done, let it speak for me.
I’m worse than some, better than I could be.

Do you believe
You still want to hang around so near me?
Do you believe
You won’t want to see me weekly merely?

You could fill up this silence
With the things I don’t know.
I might be misguided—it’s hard to go slow.
You could fill up this silence
With the things I did wrong,
But you stand there waiting.
