if we knew what the future held we wouldn't wait for sleep we're captives to our callings and the potential we won't reach you've got to put it behind you you've got to put it behind you a momentary lapse in the slow collapse we've put each other through the only thing that dawn means now is the ending to a dream the death of our affection brings a candor i don't need you've got to put it behind you and i'll put it behind me, too a momentary lapse in the slow collapse where we found each other even though i've kept your trust the sun's already set for us i understand what's healthy i understand what's real i understand the depths we've plumbed and what it takes to heal

we started on our own the morning light keeps shining all through you pretending like you're home i'm dressing you in attitude you're slowly falling, you can't see me my eyes are open, but they're burning me we'll take the highway home... why can't you just ask again we need to do those things, like before habits of an unmarked friend i have nothing left to adore you're slowly falling, you can't see me me eyes are open but they're burning me we'll take the highway home...

the plain, green dress she wore a search for grace in imitation to make them pay attention before the bloom was gone afternoons tied to the willow or spying through the window left behind, "care of the water" there's no flash before her eyes and it doesn't look like drowning so never mind, never mind to think what could have been all the letters left unanswered a promise unremembered left behind, "care of the water" there's no flash before her eyes and it doesn't look like drowning so never mind, never mind whispering "care of the water" there's no sadness in her eyes and it doesn't look like drowning so never mind, never mind

like open shine free from the sounds that take me inside and ask you to come by wish you would know how i've tried, but i can't stay i'll ask you to come back seen in dreams for days space grows at home and moves in the shadows that steep in your bed whenever this all has shown you a meaning and place with no end wish you would know how i've tried but i can't stay ask you to come back seen in dreams for days it's the currents, alive and alone like our hollow wishes and tone blame the changes that keep you away in a city that begs you to stray
