You ought to know,
That every bit shows I like you free.
We feel you breathe and why should I?
I still love you.
Feeling fonder, left wounded
I can’t love you.
And we believe a fonder reel
Pulls in catch too big to feel.
I love you somehow and its better.
It works out,
It calms me down.
I’m glad I know you.
I’m glad I know you.
And happiness it does exist,
But I don’t know that this is it.
In feeling warm like no one does.
I love you when you’re still in it.
So hold me higher, I caught you
And you caught me and this I see.
I’m blinded, I’m fixed and fine,
And ripe and stained, and washed and dried.
Meet me there to see the rest,
It’s already half dead proving you made it happen.
After it’s done,
I’ll already be there
Giving you a hand.
Glad to see you made it in.
Beauty holds a place for you in my head.

"What’s the point of holding on to what never gets used, other than a sick desire for self-abuse?"
Wow - can’t believe no one ever figured this out before. Can’t wait to try this for ourselves!
This is just crazy. Anyone else found this?

"I don’t even want you back
No, I would never want to risk something like that
'Cause I lost faith in myself
When I turned away from the one
With the longest stretch of embracing arms to hold me
So now I’m all alone
I guess God grew too tired to fix the mistakes he made with love
I think his biggest mistake was making me
I think that you deserve some form of apology
So here I am, at the end
I love this record and this track so much!!!
