lyrics

When you talk about the things you think about
It makes me think of all the things you're doing
That are not the kind of things you'd wanna tell me that you're doing
And it makes me want to shake you til you stop it

I was dreaming of a cliff where I found your body stiff
And your bloody broken nails from the safety rope that failed
And I woke up in the dark from the sickening shock
Cause the rope had my name on it

Why am I the one who gets the call to pull you from the fire
Why do I catch you when you're falling from your high wire
I'll never leave you in my past
It's a bad idea but it won't be my last

I'm still wasting my time, looking at the life lines
that are creasing my hands, they don't reveal your plans
I want to reach out and stop the things that are drifting through your
Head like vapor, and thin as paper

Time gone - and you're still singing the
Same song, the band has left but you're still on -
You won't leave the stage and the rage is like blood on your lips

I paid my fare I'm driving you out of my mind
I've had my share Your sympathy card has been declined
I'll come for just like before
It's a bad idea, but I've got plenty more

From the bottom of a well
A tiny circle of blue sky
Through the wrong end of the telescope
You can barely see me

And once again I can tell
From the look that's in your eye
You think again that I'm your best hope
A shining sword to set you free

You're alone now at the brink, and it's closer than you think
And we've both been here before in this private little war
I can't make you understand while you're reaching for my hand
I've already given up

In my mind I saw a cliff where I found your body stiff
And your bloody broken nails from the safety rope that failed
And I woke up in my bed with a sickening dread
Hoping it was really a dream

I won't be the one to pull you from the line of fire
You won't have me to free you from the razor wire
If I don't leave you in my past
It's a bad idea, it might be my last
