This sounded a lot different in my head when I wrote it and it was a bitch to mix and I'm not sure it ended up as what I think it should be. But it is.
No you weren't ever heartless,
but you could aways find a way to change your mind,
and if my fumbling is artless,
I only use it as a way to pass the time,
and always leaving in cold air,
and never having a place to lay your head,
and only after did you care,
only after we had found ourselves in bed.
But you have to admit that it's easy to please me.
And you, you have to try this again.
Because I wasn't a lover,
and you were only someone that I had to touch,
and if I wasn't your brother,
then you probably told me far too much,
and if I leave in the morning,
while under covers you are always fast asleep,
I'll stop before it gets boring,
and you won't feel like there are secrets you should keep.
But you, maybe you'll try to keep trying.
And you will tell me a lie, to keep me lying.
The only time I tried to get away, I found the door, but the handle wouldn't turn, and I was in a dream, and you said:
"If this is how you act when someone says I love you, then I love you, but I won't say it again."
And I said:
"Don't move too fast, don't move too slow, I'm never sure with you. But I'm sure that I'm wrong, and you're right, and that must be worth something."
"Can we try this again? Can we try this again? Can we try this again tonight?"
