I knew it looking at the leaves
you don't want what you need

you've been falling from a tree
with no wing to set you free
you neither grow, nor fly, nor fall

I knew that when the winter came
it masqueraded as a chain
and though your doing different things
the momentum of your swing
is a motion that I know

though when you get into a mood
where you sank my faith in you
its the thing that makes you weep
knowing that i cannot stand
the sight of any man
in a condition of self doubt

than I pretend that your not there
so you can prove to me you are
but then one day you said if you don't want me
than baby I don't want you more
