lyrics

I feel just like a match
Searching for a flint
Like an empty canvas
Aching for a print

Talked to you last night
Oh what you didn’t have to say
You think in black and white
But your words they come out grey

And if I heard you wrong, I know you wouldn’t be surprised
(If you don’t listen — I wouldn’t be surprised)
You ask me a straight question — It gets crooked in my eyes

I can see you dancing still
Hear your voice ringing out so shrill
Against the backdrop of the city that we grew up in

If you don’t listen — One of us is going to lose
And If you keep talking — I might think you’ve got something to prove

I’m not asking you to take a stand
I just want you to hold my hand
There’s magic in your eyes, though you can see through it

And if you don’t listen — How will you know
And if you love — You better let it show

Cause I’m not moving from this spot
So go on take your best shot
I told you once it was a thousand times
That the truth trickles down in nickels and dimes

And I’ve got a lot of change for you
I’ve got a pocketful of proof
I’ve got a mouthful of fools for you

But if you don’t listen — How will you learn
And If you don’t light it up — How will you burn

For anything or anyone
For anything or anyone
For anything or anyone

I’ll wipe the drive and leave today
Not running from you
Just running away
I’m thumbing it to the crossroads
And no one needs to know

But if you don’t listen
I wouldn’t be surprised
