lyrics

I was losing my bold youth
to all these halves—
what a compromise,
sometimes it’s all that I have.
Never having left old lives with strangers’ help,
even now we lie
down in a bed of dead ends.

So by hanging around,
am I telling you all that I know?

Because it’s taken the two of us to lose
when you’re home alone
and I find you lost.

Could I leave this house
whole-hearted and repaired?
It’s taking too much time
and leaves me wondering:
what are you worth
when I hope and tend to relive
all our best-of-times,
fine lines and hearts
still broken.

So by hanging around,
am I telling you all that I know?
Because it’s taken the two of us to lose
when you’re home alone
and I find you lost.
