Abbott Hayes – Returning The Favor lyrics

I thought, oh I thought at least I caught a glancing blow
I longed, oh I longed for signs of wounds along my torso
Am I merely just transparent? If I am it doesn't show
Can I blame it on the placement of a misguided arrow?
I could try to change position just to say that I tried
To keep the scales of affection from shifting side to side

I thought, oh I thought at least I shot a glancing blow
I longed to just provide a couple wounds
Right back in your direction just to keep the highs and lows
Returning you the favor as I always do

I've got to get to waking up soon, got to stabilize
Is it really that apparent? Cause my face will hardly show
Any signs of disappointment as you know, as you know

I've been throwing my weight around
As I am shifting from left to right
I'm just trying to balance out
Finding the symmetry in my life
I stand so firm and so stable now
Compared to your shaky unequal sides
Find myself willing and able now
With my completely coherent mind
