If you're scared and it shows cause you're watching them grow
And traveling blows when you're out of road
And when you jump up the earth wants you back

Your resentment grow till you're all alone
But you're so smart how could they not know
When you're standing there in good humored white

And how do you do it?
And make it seem effortless
When it's all the stupid things
So overwhelming to me
Like paying my bills
Or showing up for work early
Or laughing at your jokes

When you first said that anything goes
Or a problem is a task disguised in work clothes
That's when i knew i had to move
And why do you do it?
And make it seem delicate
When it's all the stupid things
So damn confusing to me
Like talking it through
Controlling my temper
Like letting it go
Saying please forgive me
Or laughing at your jokes

I have no idea what's been going on lately
And i just wish you'd come over and explain things

And i have no idea what's been going on lately
And i just wish you'd come over and explain things

I have no idea what's been going on lately
And i just wish you'd come over and explain things

I have no idea what's been going on lately
And i just wish you'd come over and explain things

Why do they do it?
Show up anyway
When they know that damn well
There is no room for promotions out here
And maybe it's wise
And maybe i'm just stupid
For laughing at your jokes
