If I'm rambling on again
Sorry I'm completely stunned
It's just I'm in love

Every little bit of life
Gets a little bit easier
You're singing every little bit of mine
Feels a little bit queasier
And I'm on the outside
Hoping you're right

Hard being tied in first there who loves you
With the prestigious prize of first to be scorned and forgotten
You forgot how timid I was when I met you
And how much I completely sucked up to just know you

After all this time
While you were engaged
You were the star on my stage
I'm a pigeon on your cage
You're the headline on my front page
And in your arms I felt uncomfortably secure
I had never felt so sure that I was not alone

Hard existing knowing I was in love
With one who can go on without it
The dents in my tin case of armor
The notch on your steel plate I'd learn from

And now all this time
I thought I was forgotten
You're the breath through my cotton
The stir in my shake
The fault in this earthquake
The lack of songs I'd sing
The pretend in your interest
I knew I had witnessed it
By the long in your face
Unlock the cuff of this briefcase

You're the burn without the ash
The dad without the mustache
The love without the rash
The reason for our goodbye
The hurt without the cry
You're the love I left that you lost
The curse without the cross

Still strumming the line in and out of key
But I love what I want
And I know just what I need
