I'm not sure of anyone, anyone.
but I've got plans.
I'm not asking for everything, but sure, I could use a hand.
Get a little anxious sometimes
you'll be gone and I'll be left behind
get a little nervous sometimes
it'll be my queue and I'll forget my lines
get a little lost look, as I'm staring from the corner of my eye.
Never really mastered disinterest.
I can't see how the way that you leave me only makes us close
I must be out of touch.
I won't ask you to give up on the things that seem to keep you gone
but I could be gone too.
feel a little sorry sometimes, you're not here when I am writing
feels a little awkward sometimes, you won't talk but we're not fighting
you hold on to your secrets, and I'm not privy to whats on your mind
but I cannot help but feel tired, so tired, so tired

    General Commentit's come to my attention lately that i love this song. i adore the words and the harmony in it...i can't say it's beautiful, but it's touching. passionate. i actually wrote something like "i'm not asking for everything, but sure, i could use a hand" once, before i heard this song...so i very much relate to what he's written. knowing people...but not really knowing if you can -trust- them...yet still caring for them very much...is something i can understand quite well.

    yeah, "never really mastered disinterest" is really good too. damn good lyrics.

    General CommentThis song live is just beautiful. Fewer people know the words to this because it's not that popular of a song so hardly anyone sings with Chris... and it's just so serene... and ahhh... I think it's probably the least emotional song by Dashboard, it's like a break from the intensity.

    General CommentI wouldn't say that it's the least emotional song... I think that Hands Down is the most superficial and therefore least emotional... this one is about the longing to be with someone who doesn't seem to care. At least that's my read on it.

    General CommentI think this song is so great not only because of the awesome lyircs, but also because of how it has such a unique sound, the harmonies and inflections are unusual and really cool. What exactly does he mean by "never really mastered disinterest" ?
