lyrics

Well you say you write letters just to keep from floating off
But your tired eyes and cough only seem to belie you
Cause all those nights you stand
with your dreams clenched in your hands
And even your subtlest demands
only seem to amuse them
In the forefront of your mind
is a fence that's bleeding white
But the ones that are in your sight
only see what surrounds them

So you'll hang on for the day
you can put your heart away
And he will do the same
Become one within the frame
But we'll come knocking down your door
with the same warning as before,
"You're too young to give this up."
And you'll say, "No, I'm giving more."

Well in the deadening summer heat
fresh feelings have arrived
But when you're out of work by 5,
he's squinting through daylight
In warehouses and dance spaces on crowded Friday nights
his hand has grasped yours tight
as he smiles down upon you
Through beads of sweat and shortened breath
you scream the chorus along
And though you know that nothings wrong
you still long to be somewhere
with a man by your side
on a couch by firelight
and another in the next room
sleeping quietly for the first time

So you'll hang on for the day
you can put your heart away
And he will do the same
Become one within the frame
But we'll come knocking down your door
with the same warning as before,
"You're too young to give this up."
And you'll say, "No, I'm giving more."
