lyrics

I’ve got people in places, they miss me when I’m gone
But I don’t blink for them, I smile and move on
With jaw cut like marble, and eyes as cool as stone
Soft as steel wool and warmer than bone

Oh my darling, I love you, but you couldn’t hold me down if you tried
And when I take to leavin’, there’s no stoppin’ me from sayin’ goodbye
Oh my lover, you’re not all I’ve got, but let’s just leave the others out
‘Cause they don’t know you and they don’t own me
I’m not sorry, I’m just who I am, and who I am is all I wanna be

And when the lights go out
You’re all I’m thinking about
If you’re the one in my arms

The flight of the seabird, alight above the Sound
Tells a story that words couldn’t say
It makes my feet question the concrete on the ground
As it lays down to show me the way

Oh my darling, I love you, but you couldn’t hold me down if you tried
And when I take to leavin’, there’s no stoppin’ me from sayin’ goodbye
Oh my lover, you’re not all I’ve got, but let’s just leave the others out
‘Cause they don’t know you and they don’t own me
I’m not sorry, I’m just who I am, and who I am is all I wanna be

And when the lights go out
You’re all I’m thinking about
But when the lights go out
You’re all I’m thinking about
If you’re the one in my arms

And I have heard: as the wind turns, so does the bird
So fight the urge to go wandering with your words
Walk the earth with that wondering type of thirst
Most reserved for the lonely and the pure
