Carve your heart out yourself.
Hopelessness is your cell.
Since you've drawn out these lines,
are you protected from trying times?

Man it takes a silly girl
to lie about the dreams she has.
But lord, it takes a lonely one to wish
that she had never dreamt at all.

Oh look now, there you go with hope again.
Oh, you're so sure
that I'll be leaving in the end.

Dig your ditch deep enough,
to keep you clear of the sun.
You've been burned more than once.
You don't think much of trust.

Man it takes a silly girl
to lie about the dreams she has.
But lord it takes a lonely one to wish
that she had never dreamt at all.

Oh, look now, there you go with hope again.
But I'll be sure your secret's safe with me.
Oh you're so sure
that I'll be leaving in the end,
you're treating me like I'm already gone.
But I'm not;
I will stay where you are, always.

CARRABBA, CHRISTOPHER ANDREW
