Waxwing – Schoolmaker lyrics

Part of me wants to go back through time
To those years, they were yours and mine only
Man there was nobody
Part of me wants to get on with it
I've seen days like these before and there so long
I don't want them anymore I'm leaving them off

Whining maybe, Love you definitely
I'm sorry. I don't know why I get like this so often
I'm killing myself - I'm killing us both
I can't afford not to take these risks

The well is running dry
Nothing can buy back the time
Waste no more tonight
Lay down here by my side
Pick up your horn
Blow out your lungs
Let the truth be heard, and I won't worry anymore
About everything that I could never control anyway
Let it go, it's a weight that I've wasted my life on

Some things have to be left behind
And when you found me it was just in time
I knew these things couldn't go on much longer
I remember when we were such sweet kids
And I was the type I always tried really hard - too hard
And you always knew it
I feel my arms breaking, I can't carry everything
I never wanted to let you down
Maybe I'll wake up someday and know that's never
What you wanted anyway, and I'll learn to let go
