I can't get you off my mind today
it's funny how we learn to say
the things that push us far away
from all we want, and all we shouldn't need
but you're all I want
and everything I want to be
and some days there is nothing left to say
so I sit and dream and make believe
that you are not so far away
from all I want, and all that I should need
but now all I want
is something I can't be
and he said, "did you hear the sky is falling
and no one's come to save me from your face?"
and she said, "did you see the sun stop burning
when it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?"
broken, and crawling out
a token of all your doubt
chasing the fear within
and fighting the tears without
and she said, "can't you see the shame I hide?
no, cause you're too wrapped up
and tangled in your travesty
of a life you say you want to leave behind
and so you'll run away and leave you on my mind"
on my mind...
