I sit two stories above the street
It's awful quiet here since love fell asleep
There's life down below me though
The kids are walking home from school

Some long ago when we were taught
For whatever kind of puzzle you got
You just stick the right formula in
A solution for every fool

Well, I remember the time when I came so close to you
Sent me skipping my class and running from school
And I bought you that ring 'cause I never was cool

What makes me think I could start clean slated
The hardest to learn was the least complicated, oh yeah

So I just sit up in this house and resist
And not be seen until I cease to exist
A kind of conscientious objection
A kind of dodging the draft

The boy and girl are holding hands on the street
I don't want to but I think you just wait
It's more than just eye to eye
Learn the things I could never apply

But I remember the time when I came so close with you
Let everything go it seemed the only truth
And I bought you that ring, it seemed the thing to do

What makes me think I could start clean slated
Hardest to learn was the least complicated
So what makes me think I could start clean slated
The hardest to learn was the least complicated

I'm just a mirror of a mirror of myself
All the things that I do
And the next time I fall I'm gonna have to recall
It's isn't love it's only something new

I sit two stories above the street
It's awful quiet here since love fell asleep
There's life down below me though
The kids are walking home from school

And I remember the time when I came so close with you
Sent me skipping my class and running from school
And I bought you that ring 'cause I never was cool

What makes me think I could start clean slated
The hardest to learn was the least complicated
What makes me think I could start clean slated
The hardest to learn was the least complicated

Least complicated
Least complicated
