I can be distant, like an echo in a canyon

I get resistant and I need your understanding

I don't know what happens, I get removed

I don't mean to fade out, but when I do



(*) Remind me to tell you all the ways

That I need you

Remind me to tell you if somehow I forget to

How much I've come to rely

On the strength that I find in your eyes

If you feel me startin' to slide

Remind me to tell you



I can be vacant, like a schoolyard in the winter

I get complacent, my attention starts to splinter

Then from out of nowhere as I'm

Watching you sleep

I have so much to tell you

I guess it'll keep



Repeat (*)



We built the mosaic one piece at a time

Midnight is lavender morning is lime

Major attention to minor detail

You take it too lightly it's certain to fail

My fundamentals are sadly in need

Instead of advancing I tend to recede

I'll try to change but if I should start

Acting the same

Yeah...



Repeat (*)
