lyrics

I was asleep for oh so long
You moved your things out, then I woke up alone
A note on the dresser said that you had been lying to yourself
Probably for the best, with my eyes closed, you couldn’t ask for help

I wanted more than you willing to give
Now I see life is just time through a sieve
We catch the thoughts and times we want to recall
The rest fall through to nothing at all

For the past several weeks, I can’t fall back to sleep
I’ve been searching for the rug that you pulled out from under me
Funny thing is you took it with you for the next guy who comes around
Mirage around him, he thought he was standing on solid ground

I wanted more than you willing to give
Now I see life is just time through a sieve
We catch the thoughts and times we want to recall
The rest fall through to nothing at all
