Night lift up the shades
Let in the brilliant light of morning
Steady there now
For I am weak and starving for mercy

Sleep has left me alone
To carry the weight of unraveling where we went wrong
It's all I can do to hang on
To keep me from falling
Into old familiar shoes

How stupid could I be?
A simpleton could see
That you're no good for me
But you're the only one I see

Love has made me a fool
Set me on fire and watched as I floundered
Unable to speak
Except to cry out and wait for your answer

But you come around in your time
Speaking of fabulous places create an oasis
It dries up as soon as you're gone
You leave me here burning
In this desert without you

How stupid could I be?
A simpleton could see
That you're no good for me
But you're the only one I see

Everything changes
Everything falls apart
I can't stop to feel myself losing control
[Incomprehensible] I know

How stupid could I be?
A simpleton could see
That you're no good for me
But you're the only one I see

How stupid could I be?
A simpleton could see
That you're no good for me
But you're the only one I see
