All my friends got flowers in their eyes
But I got none this season
All of the last ten years' blooms have gone and died
Time doesn’t give a reason
Hey baby, do you ask yourself sometimes what you need to be forgiven?
Everything that you've ever done wrong
Is the reason that I'm driven
Straight to you.

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I get my ends and my beginning mixed up too
Just the way you do
Thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

[speaking] It's just like answers
That come in small packages
That go in the mail

Waiting for the trains that just never come
Beginning to believe in
The disappearing nature of the people we have been
We have begun to change into the worst kind of people
So unkind
Oh apologies, no apologies, this apology
Doesn't describe the way it feels to feel for you.

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I find myself slowly disappearing too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to help me to remain with you

I just wanna stay for a little while
I wanna stay for a little while

There's a night life falling down on me
I just feel like a change
Beneath the sun in summer,
A sea of flowers won't bloom without the rain
But oh, this desert life, this high life
Here at the dying of the day
I wasn't made for this scene baby
But I was made in this scene
And baby, it's just my way
I don't want to go home alone, I wanna come on home to you

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I line my sky with all the silver I can use
Just the way you do
Thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two.

[speaking] Isn't that just like disappearing into the sum of yourself
And the person you are disappearing into
It's like one plus one equals nothing at all
One plus two equals nothing at all
One plus me equals nothing at all
One plus you equals one plus you equals you and you and you and you and
Nothing at all
Nothing at all [repeated]
