lyrics

Still the wheels are moving
Quick and steady as we go
I see you're leaving
Right before we start to slow
Too young to know, too crazed to care

I dreamed I found the answer
Right before we'd start to fall
But that's the point
I only ever dreamed it all
Too deep for sense, too steep to climb

And if I do it again, don't waste your time
Tend to the thorns and give me a sign
Coz I love you so, love love love you so

The other leaves don't tremble
They sure as hell don't fight and fall
So what's the point
Of ever fighting them at all
My silent self, my selfish ways

Coz I want you for myself
No more signs and no mistake
The trouble is
You were never mine to take
Too lost to see, too strong to hear

That if I do it again, don't waste you time
Tend to the thorns and give me a sign
Coz i love you so, love, love, love you so
