You're always talking about lifelines
strung between the ones you love
to hold you to your path as you crash.
You never even had the strength to fall apart from, did you?

Lean on me and you will fall
we are both weaker than we seem from afar
and when you hold hands try to forget
the place where you are is where you'd always been.

You're always waiting for the punchline
the joke's been over for a while
and as it passed you glossed over details
always forgetting how well you smile, didn't you?

Lean on me and you will fall
You give your heart for unreturned phone calls
let go your mooring and cast off from shore
and you'll find within yourself a promise you've ignored.


from Lamplighter, released April 26, 2004
