Forty-first minute, sixteenth hour
The milk you left out’s turned sweet and sour
It’s all over (all over me)
And it’s potent like the first time we believed
Things got jumbled; ebony seemed ivory
You see, I won’t be whistling your tunes anymore
But they’ll be lapping round and round and round my head

You made the first move
I love that you made the first move but

Close to being close is not enough
To keep me bright when my bones are rattled bare
I can’t ask you to keep on, but if
You turn full circle you might see me standing there

If somewhere there’s a place aside
Where truth and dreams collide
Maybe they’ve run out of tickets for two
Sometimes dreams seemed better company than you (sorry)
Half complete in my cocoon (a bit too soon)
So I’ll wait for dangerous days
Comfort’s not the path to safety in the end

We’re going places
I love that you’re going places without me, cause

Close to being close is not enough
To keep me bright when my bones are rattled bare
I can’t ask you to keep on, but if
You turn full circle you might see me standing there

I’m pressing down fingers and fists all at once
The problem is I’m slamming down fingers and fists all at once
And this is no piano; this is no piano

You made the first move
I love that you made the first move… but

Close to being close is not enough
To keep me bright when my bones are rattled bare
I can’t ask you to keep on
Close isn’t close enough
To keep me bright, to keep you bright
I don’t want you to go on, so if
You turn full circle you won’t see me standing there
