Talking to myself in a breezeway
Putting down anything that I find
Be it liquor, or candy, or sadness or brandy
Or your words so soft and so kind

I wonder if I still own a bible
If my fingerprints still sit on that page
The one about love, and why it's so patient
And why I have lost it with age

An answer never seems to escape me
But now I'm feeling lost my dear god
Sour and dry if I could I would cry
But my eyes barely open for sunlight

I hate the way that you always think I'm
Out to accuse for attack
But I try and smile, cause after a while
I know you'll be smiling back
Yeah, I know you'll be smiling

And I wonder, do I still own a bible?
Do my parents, do they really believe?
Cause they know I've been hurt
And if there's one thing I've learned
Don't put your trust in anyone or anything

I said there ain't nothing to learn
Except pages they burn
And people they change just like me
So baby, don't put your trust in anyone or anything

    General CommentThis band is amazing. I went to there concert in Athens at the melting Point where they opened for Kevin Devine and they did a great job. After my friend and I didnt get to hear them play this song we went up to Joe the lead singer and told him this was our favorit song and he didnt play it..He looked at us and said, "Oh well I will just play it for you now"..he then took my friend and I back stage. He got Sam the girl back up singer and his drummer Mike and they played this song. It was so amazing!
