Lyrics

Something dawned on me
The action's just outside the window
It's always safe to stay behind the curve
At a distance

If I was, if I was, if I asked you
If I was, if I was, if I asked you nicely

Somewhere in the circle
Could I slip right through the crevice
I won't stay very long
No question for a soul in transit

If I ask, if I ask, if I was you
If I ask, if I ask, you'd say nothing

Tell me everything and anything I'm missing
I'm so lucky to have had any chance at all
Tell me to pick up the broken and crumpled expectations

Maybe I tried too hard and I didn't articulate it
No one ever studies the fine lines anyway

Stop me if you see anything I'm missing
Somehow I lucked out and ended up with nothing
Make me bend my back and pick up
The broken expectations

Tell me everything and anything I'm missing
I'm so lucky to have had any chance at all
Tell me to pick up the broken and crumpled expectations
