austin, i made a mess

i had a heart full of good intent
a sweet little house, paid a decent rent
but i shouted and shouted
and no one heard

i tried to carve out my own little place
i followed the rules til i was blue in the face
but someone else
always had the last word

and if a tree falls and no one hears
well it's like that with all of these years
no one knows what happened
so maybe nothing really happened...

and austin, i made a mess out of this
and i'm going home
i only saw the dark of your sunny side
it left me feeling alone
and you won't even notice
cause a lot of people come and go
you only hear what you want to hear
you only know who you wanna know

well i guess i tried to tame you
but you know that you can't blame me for that
cause i know i'm not the first
to make that mistake

and you never made me a promise
but you seemed so full of promises
was i fool to think
there's one in there for me?

and if a tree falls and no one hears
well it's like that with all of these years
no one knows what happened
so maybe nothing really happened...

and austin, i made a mess out of this
and i'm going home
i only saw the dark of your sunny side
it left me feeling alone
and you won't even notice
cause a lot of people come and go
you only hear what you want to hear
you only know who you wanna know
