lyrics

you know I want you but keep it hush
don't disturb the quiet in the brush
a round hole for a hexagonal peg
I'm really anxious! I might just break my leg!

running again through the same, old fields
flat tires from potholes of older years
cement and new languages never work
to shutter the place where the monsters lurk

the wrestler collapses in the ring
no one was there to pull the string
I really want to tell you something
it's hidden in the words I sing

if you go to the bookstore you'll find a rack
that's got stories about someone's winding track
but the words on the page don't strike a chord
not in spanish or english or a detuned keyboard

I could buy a tape for the living room
and sit by the fire and think of you
and write down the moments where I divert
from what someone says it means to hurt

I lost my confidence in the ring
socked hard in the face by everything
don't laugh at the peasants, you're not the king
I'm just here to sing, I'm just here to sing

I'm just here to sing...
