lyrics

When you're unhappy
You get quiet
Like I'm supposed to
Read your mind
Until your anger
Breaks its silence
Until you're too far gone
To recognize

Once you get talking
You say things you
Might not otherwise
Have said
Until your bridge goes
Up in flames
Until the faultline
Fractures the earth
Again

I was standing there stunned
I was standing there stunned
Still reaching out

I see it so clearly
In my memory
How the neon
Lit your face
Outside that almost
All-night diner
Serving up 22 hours
Of mistakes, and

Something so suddenly
Switched over
Like the "Yes, we're
open" card
Flipped with a flourish
Only this time
It was the closing down of your heart

I was standing there stunned
I was standing there stunned
Still reaching out
