There you were day after day
six feet, twenty feet...two feet away
right in my pocket singing me a song
making my heart race all day long

and we talked it out
and we talked it down
but your eyes were not listening
and my ears were looking around
for another song to sing

but it was you each time
it was you

and the answer to each moment must be yes
and the question "can you live with it" becomes the test
and you weigh it against that aching in your chest
and the secretly relentless emptiness

and we talked it out
and we talked it down
but your eyes are not listening
meanwhile my ears were looking around
for another song to sing

and it is you each time
it is you
it is you

so my heart finally broke it was so long bent
and it broke in three places when it finally went
all it ever wanted was to say what it meant
so it suffered your punishment

now it lives in a shack outside of town
and only the wolves are out there listening
and in their dreams they chase her down
their moonlit eyes are glistening

and it is you each time
it is you
it is you
it is you
it is you
