It's hard to tie my shoes
When your lips are missing from my neck
And ears and thighs and all

I really just want to escape
All those people telling me
Life is not a joke
And become a troubadour
With a guitar on my back
So I can sing to you
All that I ever wanted
To say
To you

It's hard to tie my shoes
When the television's screaming words
That I don't understand

I really just want to pretend
That I like living in this game
And playing without you

So I will buy some Velcro shoes
With gold and blue on top
Because that will make me happy
Everything else is disappointing

It's hard to tie my shoes
When your lips are missing from my neck
And ears and thighs and face

I really just want to escape
I really just want to escape
I really just want to escape

    General CommentThanks for adding these lyrics. There where a few words I couldn't make out.

    As for what it means? He is missing someone he loves and even though he tries to do things to forget his love he can't.

    General CommentIt's such a sweet song. Endearingly humble. I love the way they use simple and everyday objective words.
