How can I explain?
For this trade it's too late,
To sail on past here is the understatement of the year

These resounding sentiments continue bouncing around
Good luck and thank you for thinking hard enough to jet out of town
Set your poker face to stun
Maybe we'll meet up this month
Though I can't say I'm leaving any promises
There's a good enough chance that you should bank on it

How could I explain?
For this trade it's too late
To sail on past here is the understatement of the year
So we'll plant roots near
Never planned to appear
Best guess I'll stay here
Is the under-understatement of the year

And maybe we'll find you
In your own jungle of
Words and letters that act as headers for something personal

How can I explain?
For this trade it's too late
To sail on past here is the understatement of the year
So we'll plant roots near
Never planned to appear
Best guess I'll stay here
Is the under-understatement of the year

So is it safe to stay or is it stale to stray? Maybe I'll stay either way
Is it not enough or is it on and off?
Lets plug in and look together
Would your friends delay or would they fully relate
I've been known to dissipate
No crack is small enough
I've had too much time off to sit and write you all this letter
So postmark the date I'll send this memo away

In hopes of making your year better
And we'll all dance together
And I'll dance til' you stay
Please rewind this frantic tape
Then fast forward and I'll wait
Never thought that if I'd stay
This would carry on either way
Don't you worry your head about it
I'll be home 6 months if you'll have it
So pencil in your last tie and win
I'll keep careful track of it/ be sure to shake any new year jitters
Remember me as the number one kidder

How can I explain?
For this trade it's too late
To sail on past here is the understatement of the year
So we'll plant roots near
Never planned to appear
Best guess I'll stay here
Is the under-understatement of the year
