lyrics

Joanna missing Mary, draws a picture to calm down
Stands on two feet, watches the ground
Gather water, but not enough for anything good to grow
Don’t let it shock you, I don’t read faces, but I think it’s time to go

She calms me down, or tries to, the effort unmistaken
My faith is shattered, we all feel a little torn and shaken
I care for you, I mean it, it’s about time someone knows
Don’t let it shock you, I don’t read faces, but I think it’s time to go

I’m still moving, I hope it doesn’t show
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know
Look for me, in the warm places I go
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know

In the middle of the night I still wake up, I wish I stopped
The dream’s too breathless, it’s too close, and the bubble popped
I still buy food for paranoid schizophrenics on the street in the afterglow
Don’t let it shock you, I don’t read faces, but I think it’s time to go

I’m running out of ways to avoid inevitable ends
I’ve since stopped running, I’ll go when I am sent
I hope it’s not too brief or meaningless, or slow
Don’t let it shock you, I don’t read faces, but I think it’s time to go

I’m still moving, I hope it doesn’t show
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know
Look for me, in the warm places I go
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know

Slow it down, I think she says to me
Slow it down, don’t touch my hand it’s just not right
I wish that I could lose the stones, that weigh myself down
But losing you hasn’t helped my taking flight
Slow it down, I hear now, but no one said it
There’s no one there, I reach to turn out the light
It’s getting cold, I’m getting old, I’m getting bitter
And I’m still waiting for the one who feels alright

I’m still moving, I hope it doesn’t show
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know
Look for me, in the warm places you’ll go to
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know

I’m still moving, I hope it doesn’t show
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know
Look for me, in the warm places you’ll go to
Don’t think I’ll be back again, and I think you know
