You say that I'm never too keen to... leave this place
You say that you never wanted to... hit me in the face
More than right now ever before,
But can't you see that I'm only love
Casting lines out to catch it, who can swallow my presence
And pretend that they know what I know

So you're going to town, have to open my mouth
And empty the contents onto the floor
But if I'm ever supposed to ask you to take it out
Then I'm only several inches... from the door

La da da da, la da da da, da

Hurry hurry, you say as I'm... tying my shoes
Your hands, nervous, messed up they were... tying your shoes
And you slipped up and had to start new
Well I would never say, "Hurry up," to you
But I won't open my mouth, or get mad about it
Because that's just something that I wouldn't do

But you've got to open your mouth as you're heading to town
And empty the contents onto the floor
But if I'm ever supposed to ask you to take it out
Then I'm only several inches... from the door.
