St. Mary's

[color=royal blue]This is still a work in progress, but I haven't posted something new here in a while and thought it was about darn time

St. Maryís

I do my best work when I should be doing something else
ĎCause I can never help my hands or heart, I canít help anything.
In St. Maryís we passed the time as jagged blades on clean-cut lawns.
In St. Maryís you are who you are because of what you have been.
Just when you get used to the background you wake up to a whole different scene.
I never wanted to be your impossibility.

And thereís no one on the line to meet
Ďcause I bought off all my enemies.

Rosa will be up in the city next week to bring the ring back to you.
I donít trust the rate change, I forgot the time changed, I forgot our minds changed.
I donít write to convince anymore when we both want more than what can be had on paper.
I hope everybodyís happy now, the nerves are rooted in a natural fire to be saved.
I donít want to be just something that happened to you, just a footstep in the grand parade.

So I string my shadow along six times over
Itís over your head, itís over my shoulder.

I canít tell you what Iíve done
Only what I wish Iíd become.
I canít tell you what Iíve seen
Only who I wish I could have been.

This is the blood of me, this is all theyíll find: my fingerprints on your face
And the reasons thrown out like the excuses theyíve been
But donít you go be good, donít you go be clean; just borrow an exit wound
To leak the TV anthems and pretty heroes out your side, and Iíll listen.
Iíll listen to you this time, Iíll be different.

Yeah I always walked that line and knew it
But not before I redrew it.

I always got too involved, asking could I be touched, could I be loved
Like the atomic bomb loved Japan, like I think I can?
In St. Maryís I donít know why I come when
I only plan to stay in the Mess.
I only plan to stay and push up against your weight.
In St. Maryís you could meet me halfway.
In St. Maryís you gotta think of something to say before tomorrow becomes today.

Iím sure this care makes God awful sounds
But I donít care, Iíve got the radio on now.
Iím waiting for a sign in a song to tell
Tell me where to put myself.

I canít tell you what Iíve done
Only what I wish Iíd become.
I canít tell you what Iíve seen
Only who I wish I could have been for you.

Somewhere the daylight is a set of wheels all in line
In another place, in another time
It would have been fine, I would have been alright.
Love where the day goes past the blind eye
And our roads touching only once make the desire cloud time
I donít want to be taken, but I donít want to be left behind.
Come back and I wonít let you leave tonight
If youíll set your shape and hands so close to mine.
In St. Maryís if Iím reborn so, youíll surely die.

I counted my blessings just like beats
They donít add up but they sound good to me.
The best partís finding the words that could make the difference
The worst partís knowing that no one will listen.

I canít tell you what Iíve done
Only what I wish Iíd become.
I canít tell you what Iíve seen
Only who I wish I could have been.

I look at all the days youíve lived and wonder if the summer ones are still for me long after you cooled it
I look at all the years Iíve lived for you this time wonít be the first time and wonder if you knew it
I wonder if you knew it
I wonder if you knew this

It only mean the world to me
But I left my world in St. Maryís.
I crossed every line I could that day
But you always met me half way.
