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 these 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 let 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
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 worry you'd be right
Maybe I could think all day
and then I'd think all night
Maybe I could spend two years
Never standing still
Maybe you'll forgive me soon
Maybe you never will
