Bide my crime
Give it some growing time
If I let this loose
I could whither away too soon
Shamelessness
I can't get it on the list
What I get to see
Is you slipping away from me

Give me one reason why
I should let this die

On your own
You put me on, you put me somewhere
Blood from stone
It's a deception in disguise

Take this mess
Give it some room to rest
Help me hide my muse
Show me a clearer view

Give me one reason why
I should let this die

    General Commenta good song by Fair, a band who really isn't recognized enough for the many good songs they have. A little confused as to the meaning...maybe he's stepping away from something that he feels is hindering him, and yet still questioning his decision with that because whatever he's stepping away from makes him feel good.

    I gather that from
    "What I get to see is you slipping away from me. . .
    Take this mess, give it some room to rest.
    Help me hide my muse, show me a clearer view.
    ..give me one reason why I should let this die."
