Oh I'm waiting by a phone
For the blessed ring
Like a holy grail
For a fisher king
Time is ticking down
Like a metronome
Rhythm for my brain
And its ceaseless scares
I never seem to play them to the beat I hear
Though my heart beat is a beat
That beats so near

So we had a talk last night
About the heavy blow that you dealt in fight
Your back against the wall
It was a puzzle piece
Important to the whole that I may not find
You placed within the hole
I never seem to put them in the gaps I see
Like a puzzle where the pieces lost you and me

So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No I don't see why you should

So I drift into the end like a moth to light
Down the boulevard to a coffee shop
In the land of song
In the land of wait
Beat is bearing down on this lonely town
I never seem to write them down as good as you
Like I some where lost the keys that let me in

So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
Though I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No I don't see why you should
