  • if you're scared and it shows cause you're watching them grow
    and traveling blows when you're out of road
    and when you jump up the earth wants you back

    your resentment grow till you're all alone
    but you're so smart how could they not know
    when you're standing there in good humored white

    and how do you do it?
    and make it seem effortless
    when its all the stupid things
    so overwhelming to me
    like paying my bills
    or showing up for work early
    or laughing at your jokes

    when you first said that anything goes
    or a problem is a task disguised in work clothes
    that's when i knew i had to move
    and do you do it?
    and make it seem delicate
    when its all the stupid things
    so damn confusing to me
    like talking it through
    controlling my temper
    like letting it go
    saying please forgive me
    or laughing at your jokes

    i have no idea what's been going on lately
    and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

    and i have no idea what's been going on lately
    and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

    i have no idea what's been going on lately
    and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

    i have no idea what's been going on lately
    and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

    why do they do it?
    show up anyway
    when they know that damn well
    there is no room for promotions out here
    and maybe it's wise
    and maybe i'm just stupid
    for laughing at your jokes
