Pity
Take pity on me
'Cause Im not half the man that I should be
Always turning to run
From the people I should not be afraid of
And darlin' you should know
That I have fantasies about being alone
Its like love is a lesson
That I cant learn
So I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn

[Chorus]
I know you cant hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wont swim
But who will dip his toe in
Just to keep you here with him

Ive got this habit I abhor
When we go out Im always watching the door
As if theres someone Im gonna see
Who could out do the things that you do to me

[Chorus]
I know you cant hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wont fly
Who will take to the skies
If he thinks that youre about to say goodbye

Pity, take pity on me
'Cause Im not half the man that I should be
And I dont blame you youve had enough
With all these empty promises and countless bluffs

[Chorus]
'Cause I know you cant hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wont jump
When he falls in love
He just stands with his toes on the edge
And he waits for it to disappear again
