Well I'm sitting here flipping through excuses for why I shouldn't call you
Every muscle, every fibre, every hair object to the very idea
I just can't put my finger on...... however hard I try to slap away the halo around you
Still it lingers and abruptly without warning bitter memories appear

When I think on it for long enough
Of all the time we wasted on each other's love
It's a wonder that I still believe the sun is coming up tomorrow

What was once so fine, has been broken and burned
So I wait here in the dark, for the light to return

Blinded, I was blinded 'til I knew only the good love survives
Blinded, 'til I understood that only the good love survives, only the good love survives
But we were only wasting time

All those wringing hands and cheap ideas we could reason as failures
But to run it through again would only serve to do nobody no good
So let the universe decide how we can loosen all the knots and tangled ways we came to
And resolve to never speak of it again - oh love if only we could

When I think on it for long enough
Of all the time we wasted on each other's love
It's a wonder that I still believe the sun is coming up tomorrow

Blinded, I was blinded 'til I knew only the good love survives
Blinded, 'til I understood that only the good love survives, only the good love survives
But you and I were wasting time
