Could we do it again
If he asked how it felt
And I didn't say this time
You tried to scare me with empty thoughts
That means not a thing
'Cause I'm down behind you
Could we swing it again
If I changed how he looked
And turned to the right to bend
You live with something that I can't explain
But your face cracks a smile when you see it shining

You feel things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for something that I can't see
I don't want to be you
You don't want to be me.
Just let it breathe

If the moon goes up tomorrow and I'm down on a farm
And you don't believe whose writing with me
Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your mind to yourself
Keep your breath to yourself
Let me float on by you

You see things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for something that I can't see
You don't want to be me
I don't want to be you

It's so very necessary
It's so delectable to see a stone
It's so impossible to find a reason
When you're standing there
Watching me now

Could we live it again
If we dressed just the same
And held on to lovers when
We couldn't really live with anyone
See mostly ourselves so just go on lying

You feel things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for someone that I can't see
I don't want to be you
You don't want to be me
Just let it breathe
Let it breathe
