lyrics

precarious place

let the world fall down around me
i am too blind to see
i am too numb to feel anything while she's gone

walk around like this isn't real
like this is all a bad dream
and i'll wake up in the morning in her arms

hmm.
a precarious place to be, you
know very well that she be
somewhere smiling
somewhere laughing
happy finally, be

grown up me says to me
this isn't fantasy
this isn't make believe.

see either she wants you
or she don't
either she'll try to
or she won't
just look around you
she is gone.
she still. gone.

let the clouds descend upon me
i am too dumb to see
i am too numb to feel
lightening strike me down

maybe i should color my hair
or find a nice thing to wear
and it would make her want
to love me now

hmm. a precarious place to be, be
you know very well that she be
somewhere fucking someone
whoz much prettier than me

grown up me says to me
this is not a bad dream
this is all very real

cuz either she wants you
or she don't
either she'll try to
or she won't
just look around you
she is gone.
she still. gone.


precarious place to be, be
precarious place to be, be
somewhere fucking someone
whoz much prettier than me, be

precarious place to be, be
precarious place to be, be
somewhere fucking someone
she can trust much more than me, be.

you want her to want you
but she don't
you want her try to
but she won't just look around you

she is gone.
she is gone.
