Don't even understand what I'm doing here
Wish I was back in my dreams where it all seemed clear
You and me are different and I know you're scared
I'm flat out broke, confused, and unprepared

No one seems to get you anywhere you go
You're misunderstood just like Vincent Van Gogh
You're an artist and you're good at what you do
But you don't leave any room for anyone but you

And I'll see you tonight
In the back of my head, in the back of my mind
Try to hold you tight
But you tell me I should quit while I'm still behind
I guess I'm still behind

That time we walked together in the pouring sun
Holding hands, showing you off to everyone
I was proud to be the only person by your side
With the hopes of maybe someday making you my bride

And then there was that time, it was rain not shine
You were cold with no sweater, but you wouldn't take mine
Then you jumped in the car and you drove on home
And I walked a lonely mile singing all alone

And I'll see you tonight
In the back of my head, in the back of my mind
Try to hold you tight
But you tell me I should quit while I'm still behind
I guess I'm still behind

So I feel like someone hit me with a hammer in the head
As I lay and make myself a nice, cold bed
And I wonder where you're going, if you'll make it alright
And I wonder if you'll kiss me in my dreams good night
Yeah I wonder if you'll kiss me in my dreams good night

And I'll see you tonight
In the back of my head, in the back of my mind
Try to hold you tight
But you tell me I should quit while I'm still behind
I guess I'm still behind
