lyrics

Go on your own for a little while.
Take a look around before you leave.
The décor is not bad, it just needs work.
I bet you’d fix it with a smirk.

It’s all just right. You can’t pretend to see.
It’s fine my dear. You’ve just got to see.

Tell me what I need to be.
Yours is the one thing that I see.
This arrangement has but one side.
If it had two, we’d both be blind.

Now that you’ve seen it all in your head, for you to come back down would mean the end.
Something inside insists that I follow you around the corner through the bend.

It’s all just right. You can’t pretend to see.
It’s fine my dear. You’ve just gotta see.

Tell me what I need to be.
Yours is the one thing that I see.
This arrangement has but one side.
If it had two, we’d both be blind.
I tried to lose, but not in time.
