I saw the things that could be
And now they're gone to stay
You know that I can't take this
I can't watch this go away

It's not the things you told me
It's not the times you stayed
I know I fucked up
I can't make this go away

She needs a break
Things gone astray
Against the grain

It wasn't what it should be
It wasn't all the ways
I learnt to watch what's coming
Now I know it comes my way

At times we lost it all
And all the times we've went astray
We knew that we fucked up
And now I know there's just no way

She needs a break
Things gone astray
Against the grain

I've counted
I've counted all the ways
It's spinning heads today
You say there is no way
It works against the grain

I saw the things that could be
And now they're gone to stay
You knew that I can't take this
I can't watch this float away
It's not the things you told me
It's not the times you stayed
I know I fucked up, I can't make this go away

She needs a break
Things gone astray
Against the grain

I've counted
I've counted all the ways
It's spinning heads today
You say there is no way
It works against the grain
