How can I help you if I can’t even help myself?
How can I love you if I can’t tidy up my shelf?
How can I catch you before I learn to take my time
And start to enjoy the ride?
How can I love you?

How can I trust you when I don’t even trust my song?
How can I follow you when my shoelaces come undone?
Why would I want you when I don’t know what it is I want
And it would be wrong to lead you on?
I’m already wandering
I’m already wandering

Lately when I freeze in place,
A heavy stillness permeates.
All the colors, how they run.
Do da do ra rum do da do ra.

Lately when I freeze in place,
I hear the language of autumn days,
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, there is more to come.
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, we’ve only just, we’ve only just begun.

How can I thank when i can’t even make my bed?
How can I water you when the plants are all gone for dead?
How can I help you before my clothes are inside out?
My wings are upside down.
My halo is burning.

How can I help you when my ...
How can I trust you when my ...
How can I love you before I’ve learned to seize the day
Before I’ve learned to fake
Waiting is everything.
They say waiting is everything.

Lately when I freeze in place,
The heavy stillness permeates.
And all the colors, how they run.
Do da do ra rum, do ah do ra.

Lately when I freeze in place,
I hear the language of autumn days,
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, there is more to come.
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, we’ve only just begun.
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, there is more to come.
Something like, dum do da do da dum,
Something like, we’ve only just, we’ve only just begun.
