Kris Delmhorst – To The Wire lyrics

I see you across the room
Can't say hi, it's too soon
Don't know why this doesn't fit
I try and try, still I can't make it

The world is wide, where's my corner?
Somewhere to hide, somewhere to flow from
People here are all so friendly
They smile and smile, still they can't see me

And I thought that I'd made it so far
But I'm right back down to the wire

Act your age, quit your stalling
Turn the page, heed your calling
Are you the dance or the dancer?
You ask and ask and still no answer

And you thought that you'd made it so far
But you're right back down to the wire

So come on now, blow my cover
Bend my knees, be my other
There's still a place you can't take me
There're still some things you can't make me

And we thought that we'd made it so far
But we're right back down to the wire
