Your heart's been sleeping in
Left out and lost again
Your mind's been wandering around
This lonely town

So come down and sing with me
Straighten your voice and bend your knees
We'll put that old trapeze back up
And swing you around

What you need is a perfect melody
But what you take is another man
To take you for-granted again
And i watch you burn
I love you quietly

I'm a hallway with hardwood floors
And so many open doors
That I've watched you walk through wanting more
Than I had to say

All the years since we first met
And I'm still your tourniquet
I'll help you to forget the way
You're bleeding today

What you need is a perfect melody
But what you take is another man
To take you for-granted again
And I watch you burn
I love you quietly

But I'm a better man than this
Comforting your wasted kiss
When i would take you home in these arms of mine
These arms of mine

What you need is a perfect melody
But what you take is another man
To take you for-granted again
And i watch you burn
I love you quietly
