lyrics

Am I reaching over everyone,
just to let you know this weighs a ton?
I’ll hear you out, and all about
what it takes to talk.
Come on, tell me now, I’ll hear you out.
Just before we go and run around--
but knowing you, you’ll tell me that I cannot be
your one.

So come and tell me now, into our house,
what do I mean to you now?

But who knows now who we are now.

Often I wonder where you’ve gone;
don’t leave it up to me to bring you home.
Don’t leave me out, don’t leave me
out alone.
Oh come on wretched love, don’t bring me down,
don’t mess it up and wonder at the sounds
I’m making now--
don’t make me out to be someone I’m not.

So come and tell me now, into our house,
what do I mean to you now?

Because who knows now who we are now.

Don’t run off now,
when I’m getting old.

We are The Commonwealth, a group of young men with a Protestant work ethic and a winning smile. We are also grass-fed and cage-free.
