lyrics

Maybe I could spend two years feeling sorry for myself.
Maybe I could shift the blame to someone else.
Maybe I could give my love away. I’d give it all for free.
Maybe I’ll forget again to save some of it for me.

First, I filled my own two hands, with all my lonely tears.
Then, I dug a canyon and filled it up with years.
After all that time, the only thing I learned
Was how to set a love on fire and how to watch it burn.

Close your eyes. Take my hands.
Hear these words. Understand.
It’s no lie: there’s no plan.
Fly like birds, ‘cause we can.

Maybe you were wondering, or maybe you might know,
How hard it was for me to stay; how hard it was to go.
Remember when you said nothing? It came so easily.
Maybe you had changed the locks. Maybe I lost my key.

Close your eyes. Take my hands.
Hear these words. Understand.
It’s no lie: there’s no plan.
Fly like birds, ‘cause we can.

Maybe I could think your thoughts. Then I worry you’d be right.
Maybe I could think all day and straight on through the night.
Maybe I could spend two years, never standing still.
Maybe you’ll forgive me soon. Maybe you never will.
