COMPLICATED

i am turning inside out, that's how i'll begin
i just thought i'd check it out, i didn't know it doesn't end
when i look into your eyes, i can't help the way mine look
you hate when i philosophize, you think i read to many books
i try to walk a thin line, between salvation and doubt
i'm afraid to talk somtimes, i don't know what to talk about
i don't mind staying quiet, but i have to communicate
i only wish that you'd just try it, when you feel like you can't relate...

this feels complicated
but i think we're 'bout to break it
we feel so unrelated
but i think that we can make it

there's a place i think, i would like to be
i might be on the brink, of moving there permanently
from my wired brain, to my beating heart
i'm walking in the rain, i'm walking in the dark
once i build my house there, you should know you're invited
come or not, if you care, if you do i'd be delighted
but i think i've got a ways to go, and i don't want to bring you down
i'll understand you have to know, if you don't want to stick around...

this feels complicated...

don't know if thoughts on paper, could ever really help
i'll still send you this letter, you can leave it on your shelf
but i can't close the door, and i can't close my eyes
you can sleep on it some more, you can wake up if you like
even though i like to drive forever, i'd also like you near
you think it's cloudier than ever, i think its never been so clear
i could go slow motion, like the morning rising sun
you could show a little emotion, i won't tell anyone...

this feels complicated...

the air's so bad between us, only God can clear it out
but God refuses to see us, till we try to work it out
memories that come are bad, they are probably for you too
but when they're good it's kind of sad, cause good seems a little more true
words like dust in your mouth, i can't say any more
i can trust what this is all about, enough for you to stay unsure
am i singing you a love song? only if you want it to be
you've known me a little too long, to get it from me simply...

this feels complicated...
