Lyrics
Give me a light, don't be afraid
I won't use it on you, I won't illuminate
Any of your secrets, they're safe
All your secrets, they're safe with me

And I remember the time I know you're thinking of
When I didn't get it, well I didn't know yet
I didn't notice any of your hints
I didn't know then just what you meant

Sometimes I'm a little slow, I crawl around
I raise my head up off the ground

Sometimes I wonder why I'm thristy
When the cup is full and it's sitting right there
It's sitting right in front of me, why don't I drink?
Put my lips to it and drink

Sometimes I'm a little slow, I crawl around
I raise my head and take a look around

And all the reasons that you hear
And all the frequencies canceling each other out
As the first is to the last
Like a butterfly pressed between glass

Throw me a line, don't be afraid
I want to pull you in, don't want to pull you under
We'll float up above the waterline
Rest in the seaweed float on the slime

Sometimes I'm a little slow, I crawl around
I raise my head up off the ground

Sometimes I'm a little slow, I crawl around
I raise my head and take a look around
