LYRICS
Someone told me I’m a water sign
That means I move among greater minds
Suspend between then drain
Dry up like the weather
It’s wrong and forgotten
But it feels so right
And I just love the way the fabric lies
And light reflects the thread you might want to sever
I hope not forever

I see you sick, I see you fine
And you don’t mean to be unkind
Though I know way down
That I am out of heart when out of sight
I keep a flame burning inside
If you need to bum a light

Body working but your brain is shot
And all good tidings are the first forgot
But you hold a lot and i know I’m kind of a bummer
Watching closely for some kind of clue
That I mean anything at all to you
If your world collapses
I’ll be down in the rubble
I’d build you another
I’ll wait out the summer

I love you sick, I love you fine
And you don’t mean to be unkind
Though I know way down
That I am out of heart when out of sight
I keep a flame burning inside
If you need to bum a light
