i knew there was something about you
the first time i tripped on your smile
could make a man go
way out on a limb
but how could i ever imagine
how could i ever foresee
that when i got there
i'd find you there with him?

friends tried to warn me
right at the start
that you were too young
in affairs of the heart
i might as well have been
shooting in the dark

but your eyes were so sad and so holy
and your faults were all so perfectly true
i didn't know that the question was loaded
or i wouldn't have aimed it at you

your hands were as cold as december
your eyes were as warm as july
you said you didn't love me
but you hoped in time you'd change
the leaves scraped by on the sidewalk
while a few billion years rolled by
can you understand how i
might have felt a little strange?

when there's a hole in your heart
like a black hole in space
that swallows up love
without leaving a trace
you can't believe in romance
so you make all the classic mistakes

or was it all an invention
was it all in my head
i didn't know that the question was loaded
if you didn't load it, who did?

can't you. can't you see me?
are you, are you blind?
or are you just afraid of what you'll find
somebody turned the lights off
and i'm stumblin around in the dark
you let me touch your soul
why can't i touch your heart

see me balance my brain
on the head of a crisis
come see me care and
not care what the price is
come see me, come see me
before the next sun rises

so what if you're a miner with tunnel vision
i live at the bottom of my mind
why don't you put a pair of dark glasses on
drop down and see me sometime
