How can I explain when you don't even look me in the eye? Something's building up inside of me.
Say you've forgot but i know you've not. Say it's you and me. No, no i can't agree, 'cause when we're alone I trace the seams you've sewn. Kisses hide the stitches but I pried and found the pictures. Should i go if you're still basking in the afterglow? We could have been a pair. Can't share a heart that's not there. Lost, it's not even on her: the cost of that fateful summer. And I tried to fill her britches. Does it show? 'Cause you're still basking in the afterglow. My heart is strong and I can take it, but there ain't no cure for your summertime blues.
If nothing has been spoken, it means that it's not real. It's not a path I've chosen-- not to feel the way you feel. What I've done and where I've been are not to blame. Never wanted to win. It's just survival: that's my aim. 'Cause What can I do, if I can't tell you? It's a quiet, creeping darkness I've kept at bay. Crushed by the weight of having nothing else to say, 'cause I can't bear to drag you down, but i do.
No, it's nothing. Of course, I'm fine. It's not important. We can talk about it some other time. Yes, I promise it's no big deal. You don't have to consider the way that i feel. You should know that I think I'm lucky. I'll say it over and over, so let's forget this. I said "I'm sorry"! Can't you just let it go? You can't fix me, 'cause I'm not broken. I was born with my heart not open. I should be happy. Don't think I don't know. I just can't explain it. It's just the way it goes.
