You Were In The House





You Were In The House


I waited for you through embarassment and fear

Through the hurt of never having, but oh so near

I waited so long I didnt know that it was wrong

Now I'm just as weak as I once were strong


I reached out for you ‘til my fingers fell numb

I added up the parts but never figured out the sum

Until I let go of common sense and myself

Now I try to reach for someone else




I was not the one to go home

When the party was over

I was not the one to give out or give in

When you were in the house



I stretched out so far that I some time had to break

By feeling nothing but how to fake

And so I embraced the pure vision of it all

The pretty little things you see in a fall
