I spoiled just like wine, left a sour taste in your mouth
You said, it was not that that I changed I just strayed
In the dark of the night

Love is patient and wise, but it's not always kind when you learn how it leaves
So nimble and lithe, through your fingers like sand
It never lingers
I'm grating my hands

My patience is waning, I'm growing tired
In the scorn of the weather, my fickle heart fades
And I can't make the grade
But I'll graduate gently without stories worth singing, of my own
Just need a little romance
I just need a little time
Just need a little young love, to ease my mind

My ears ring, teeth grind, think I'd be able better off blind, she said
So that I won't picture it
I've yet to grow patient, I've yet to grow kind
Love was patient and wise, but didn't stay through time
Preoccupied we were, now my smile's breaking
But if I learn to relax all my muscles in vain
Float on the waves see if your heart still remains, it's as wide as the ocean
The birds in the sky

My patience is waning, I'm growing tired
In the scorn of the weather, my fickle heart fades
And I can't make the grade
But I'll graduate gently without stories worth singing, of my own
Just need a little romance
I just need a little time, time
Just need a little young love, to ease my mind

It's a long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am
Long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am
Long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am
Long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am

It's a long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am
Long way down from the top to the bottom
It's a long way back to a high from where I am

    General CommentI'm really surprised there's no comments on this when they have a substantial following and their live performance of this is so impassioned. His woman has broken his heart by straying and she's obviously in a total state too. He still believes in love but he knows it's a long way away.
