Do your ideals rust in the rain?
Do you feel our lives are oh so plain?
Genuine lies, an admission to doubt.
There's wisdom in knowing that we know nothing about ourselves.
And we crash and burn.

What's there to say if you can't say it?
And if I can't explain it, how do I expect you to change it?
I thought you could read my mind but I don't think you have the patience or the time to read the signs.

Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.

And when you go to Seattle in May I hope it rains up and down on your parade.
Just like you did on all my good days and I put this all on you but I got to
Trust myself that I won't drown in another shallow pool again like you
And maybe one day just one day feel what I think and think what I feel.

Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.
Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.
