lessons

sorry i missed your call last night, you know how i lose track of time

i’ll just say i missed that ringing and blinking light

cuz i know you’ll say it’s fine

 

oh i’ll call back soon

right after these important things i’ve got to do, oh

 

don’t ask me questions that you don’t want answers to

no i don’t agree with most of what you say and what you do

just smile when you walk past and ask me how i’m doing

and i won’t care what you believe, no i won’t bother you

 

time is brutal like a saint, the hills roll by as my heart breaks

when i was young i had no voice but i had no shame

now years have bled into this name

 

and don’t worry man i’ll call you soon

just don’t forget me until i do

 

you’d think that after all this shit that i’ve been through

that i would learn my damn lessons on how to mean something to you

and i know it won’t hold well but you should know the truth        

that though i care how you see me, no I'll never change for you

 

blood from a stone, blood from a stone     

getting anything from you is like blood from a stone 

 

you’d think that after all this shit that i’ve been through

that i would learn my damn lessons on how to mean something to you

and i know it won’t hold well but you should know the truth        

that though i care how you see me, no i’ll never change for you
