lyrics

Oh well I saw what I saw what I saw what I saw.
From my eye in the ceiling above us,
your hands—they were asking for more.
From my ear in the wall where we fell,
your heart was a-roar.

Oh well I know what I know what I know what I know--
that a kiss is just friction and air
and it’s not yours or mine to retrieve.
Come stop me so I don’t try
Come stop me so I don’t try.

I’ve got 17 words for your one.
17 words for your one.
And they line up like birds in my sleep.

Oh well I heard what I heard what I heard about you--
that you’re dangerous and out for the hunt
and I’m just a sweet little lamb.
And I’d been feeling left out for too long on this land.

But when I am strong, when I’m finally strong in this town,
I’m planning to make something big, as big as my loving can be.
And whether or not you’re a part will mean nothing to me.

And oh well I know what I know.
