So far away I tore her up with a letter,
She's feeling what i do deep inside
as I stand before you, I swear I told the truth
And I tell you that my sentence is served, and I didn't do no wrong
I held her so close, what I wanted most, was to...
And it was us, left in the dust of that third floor apartment
The morning's hell, so long fare well, from this third floor apartment
The night before, was like crystal meth
couldn't get enough, then we got rough in his room
pulled the life from your lips, should've listened to Rick
You're no good for me, and I'm sure you'd agree, leaving life intact
Sitting at the bar, recounting just how far we went
Jer says, "Tell her, GET BENT!", I can't properly vent my frustrations
There's no truth in lies, yeah, I'm sure that she cries when she recalls it
I've had days and I've had nights (nights of endless love)
But not like the one's with you (you are the only one)
In the night I come to you, behold that MELLOW BLUE
to give you my soul
Chorus: It'a a difference of opinion
Everything's in its own dominion
Oh, you and me, we'll build a catastrophy
Unlike the sight of greed
Why don't we tumble in the weeds
Can I try your soul in tug of war?
DID you ever tally up the score, I think I'm winning (8-4)
But without the thought of fair game, everything around just stays the same.
(it's over and I'm gone)
To give you my heart I already have (can't break away)
Maybe you just stole it from me (I'm leavin' today)
You stole my mind but that's okay (leavin' you behind)
I've taken your power, your soul away (you can't chain me down)
Let me try to be eloquent cause when I'm not you're always laughing
On topics of life I expand and blow hot smoke in your eyes
Though you continue to love me more, oh lord, its beyond safety
But you ain't mad that I came a bit late, or that music came first while you patiently waited
On topics of cool green curves in the architecture; topiary thoughts of your love
The inane man laughed and pointed at screens that showed of a distant place
All i could do was look at your face, and see time in its place standing still.
We look back on him with incidious grins of pleasure and pastures
I met a woman who sold it to hollywood, for a pretty price I imagine it went
But i won't buy, sell or trade your love, or the strings I aesthetically played.
In the porticoes of your brown eyed hands you make your intentions so clear
I feel like escape today, will you come and be with me?
We could drive out to the country, where the leaves are turning lovely
I could lie in your arms all afternoon, listen while your voice it soothes me.
Chorus: And your face, its the place where I lay my heart
In this space, can't erase now what we've begun
When the stars come out we don't have to come back, tothis life
'Till the sun rises, if it ever does again
More than faith, I've had faith, but not like this with you.
Bridge: And there's not much there just you and I
I'm reading your face, and understanding your eyes.
