the film unreels before me,
the celluloid of all these years
and I still can’t see you
but I hear you telling me
we'll play it by ear
and this is so far out of tune
that i'm not good enough to fake it
so i close my eyes
and say goodnight to the moon
feel sorry for the winter trees,
so cold and naked.

but I, I crinkled my smile
and hid my eyes from the sun
and I was impatient when you asked
if you were the only one
we're such good actors
- do we feel, or just think we should?
and I swear that I'd come clean if I,
if I thought I could.

and you gave it all,
but it all slipped through the cracks
and i threw a kiss over my shoulder,
but i forgot to look back
and i want to be witty and clever,
or at the very least - kind.
but i've forgotten all the words that used to be
so easy to find.


and i'm aware that you'd be good for me
if only i would let you be
but mutiny comes in every shape and size
and by now my jumping ship should come
as no great surprise
