lyrics

i can see the videos
and i can see the way it goes
you said, “How can you see so many things,
with both of your eyes closed?”

i’m learning how to use words
without the shout
have patience
without doubt
how to love
with no pretense

but I’ve been flooded a few times
my heart and my mind
but this flood feels like
a different type
and you’ve been telling me
your lies,
telling me
your truths
looking in my eyes
oh what to do
oh what to do

getting lost in life’s motion
but there still is no potion
to change the time
singing oo la la
for the first line
wondering how many first times
we’ll be given
singing, oo la la
for the last line
wondering how many last times
we’ll be given

but I’ve been flooded a few times
my heart and my mind
but this flood feels like
a different type
and you’ve been telling me
your lies
telling me
your truths
looking in my eyes
oh what to do
oh what to do

learning how to use words
without the shout
have patience
without doubt
how to love
with no pretense
