You’re impressively subtle and you’ve never had a bad word to say
But I’m notoriously ignorant, always looking the other way
So it built up in you like a dam, and crack by painful crack
It swelled, spilled out like a river, and you wouldn’t take it back
We laughed at our awkwardness on that rooftop balcony
Looking out during your moments of doubt and questioning
I’m just a bus stop, you know? You’ve still got miles to see
But you insist that this is exactly where you want to be.
I’m shoving change in your hand, but you throw it on the road
Grasping for fingers that you can’t even hold
You say you love me, want me more than anything,
But you’re so much more than the messages you left on my machine.
Thank you, very kind.
