Listen waiting
Pulling a thread on through
The fabric in my head
But is it how so
How I fear what I make
And I so want
For sewing sake

To play a part
This needles just to sharp
And the blood is just as dark
As the blue
Opening my heart

And I have manners
So if you won't talk(want to walk?) away
But do me the favor
Of being honest if you want me to stay
Cuz baby you're an impone
And I could never hope to beat
I never learned the rules
And I don't know how to cheat

I can feel my sides unstitching
And my hold on things
Begins to shake
But still I follow the path
And without knowing what I make

When I feel you in my head
I turn away to my needle and thread
Cuz I was never yours to sew
And you were never mine to weave
You said that I should go
And I pretended I wanted to leave

In a dream besides a warm heart
The seams are gone, none
The figure says I'd rather stay and be rapt with you
Than to be wrong and run

When I feel you in my head
I turn away to my needle and thread
Cuz I was never yours to sew
And you were never mine to weave
You said that I had to go
And I pretended I wanted to leave
