Don't want to go to sleep
You think I'm trying to be
Another Hemingway
That is not what I seek
My words are much too meek
They've managed this place to stay

I Just want a lover
Don't want another foolish child running blindly
But stay here beside me
Close enough there

No moment to be lost
The roads we're on will cross
But I won't, dear, unpack my clothes
You're bracing for the news
Like you're bracing to be bruised
You keep dreaming we're in the throes

I couldn't love her
I just need another day with the weight on two shoulders
I don't mind getting older
She's close enough there

You don't have to suffer
It's not giving in to time or desire
You're a sweet talker and I'm a liar

Close enough there
I need you there


from Sweet Talker, released April 1, 2014
