Monday morning.
Too early to tell if you're still here.
I can read you better than you think,
Well enough to know that when you don't say a word
I'm getting under your skin.
(Deeper with every breath).
I am under your skin.

Don't call me again until you're sure
I'm the one you want to talk to.

And breathe into my lungs.
Bring me back to life.
Bring me back.

[next verse is generally improvised live, but one recorded version goes something like:

I don't think you know what you do to me.
Honey, you make me want to scream down these walls,
And if they can't hear me in heaven or hell
Then I'm not screaming loud enough.]

And I don't want to go home.
I don't want to start over.

(Breathe in,
Breathe out,
One more lie won't hurt anyone.
He can never know just how much you want him.
Why you say the things you do,
Why you sing the songs you do,
Why you dream the dreams you do.
Why you...

Breathe in,
Breathe out.
He can never know.)
