about

Composed in 2008

lyrics

My dear, what a mess you’ve made
Peering through slots in that window shade
Hearing the words I’ll never take back
I steer away from all thoughts of you
Fearful that your dreams are coming true
We’re not the way that you wish we would be

And no, it’s not likely I’ll change my tune
So, it’s farewell to the likes of you
I’ll not follow you home

Years I’ve watched you wandering
Tears you’ve spent on account of me
Clear as the day they remain on your face
Leer all you like, it won’t bother me
Merely leave me out of your fantasy
Near, far, I swear I couldn’t care less

And no, it’s not likely I’ll change my tune
So, it’s farewell to the likes of you
I’ll not follow you home
It’s not likely I’ll change my tune
So, it’s farewell to the likes of you
I’ll not follow you home

My dear, what a mess you’ve made
Peering through slots in that window shade
Hearing the words I’ll never take back
