The Nisa: Lyrics from The Moods of Innocence

"Letter to an Unknown Love #8"

Listening to your story,
waiting for the punch line,
when it finally gets here I forget to laugh.

So you forget Iím in the room,
hide behind the black light,
turn away and make funny shapes on the wall.

Iím gonna light a candle,
I wonít feel so all alone,
like a child my mind starts wandering off.

Then I count the times that Iíve been,
so careless with the way that I feel,
way I feel for you I feel tonight,

waiting around for you

Lying face down on the bed,
pillows getting soaking wet,
anyone who was watching would say I look strange.

ĎCause Iím 23 years old,
the waterís dripping from my eyes,
still I think Iím good enough.

Gonna light a candle,
I wonít feel so all alone,
like a child my mind starts wandering off.

Then I count the times that Iíve been,
careless with the way that I feel,
way I feel for you I feel tonight,

waiting around for you

Listening to story,
waiting for the punch line,
when it finally gets here I forget to laugh.
