lyrics

It's ok we broke down today
Cause everything that's moving,
is moving through some pain.
I was only thinking,
that all this was done,
that we said what we needed to,
so why do I feel, I've gotta run.

I'm not much for reading, I've not much to say
but I will be ready to stand up that day.
And you don't have to view it, the way that I do.
But on that day you're watching me, you'll see my eyes run over you.

So you can steal my thunder, but I will steal your rain.
And hope springs eternally throughout this refrain.
I won't hold on to what you say.
It dies with the wind, but the pressure's killing me, too high to begin.

And now your eyes are covered,
and your skin is over tanned.
And now I look upon your face,
and wonder if you've got half a plan.
But you don't have to view it,
the way that I do,
but I can see how you've handled me,
and now I can only look through you.

It's too bad, given what we had,
cause something's now been broken,
and left me feeling sad.
No matter how much you tell me,
I just won't bite.
Cause caffeine is my drug of choice,
and I saw marks on your back last night.
