In a room by a bay a cigarette burns away
You sat and watched in that dreamy way
You keep cool when confusion mounts
That I explain it never seems to count
It never
Seems to count
I've come to understand you
Although too much it never amounts

And I've found
That it knocks me to the ground, and
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me

I'm weakening
Oh I'm shaking, rattling everything
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me

You wrote the rulebook, and when I look
The balance sways, the weeks are days
The minutes that escape me
The guilty minutes hate me

You wrote the rulebook, and when I look
The balance sways, the weeks are days
Reminds me of when we were young
I was struck weak by a wicked tongue

And I've found
That it knocks me to the ground, and
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me

I'm weakening
Oh I'm shaking, rattling and everything
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me

All the people that you left
It was the mark you overstepped
And once in every while I'll see through and Therese, she'll smile

The people that you left
It was the mark you overstepped
And once in every while I'll see through and Therese, she'll smile

And I've found
That it knocks me to the ground, and
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me

I'm weakening
Oh I'm shaking and rattling and everything
It scares the health out of me
It scares the health out of me
