So I'm waiting by a phone for the blessed ring
Like a holy grail for a fisher king
Time is ticking down like a metronome
Rhythm for my brain and it's ceaseless scares

I never seem to play them to the beat I hear
Though my heart beat is a beat that beats so near

So we had a talk last night about the heavy blow
That you dealt in fight your back against the wall
It was a puzzle piece important to the whole
That I may not find you placed within that hole

I never seem to put them in the gaps I see
Like a puzzle where the pieces lost you and me

So I'm changing who I am
'Cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No, I don't see why you should

So I drift into the end like a moth to light
Down the Boulevard to a coffee shop
In the land of song, in the land of wait
My beat is bearing down on this lonely town

I never seem to write them down as good as you
Like I some where lost the keys that let me in

So I'm changing who I am
'Cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should

So I'm changing who I am
'Cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No, I don't see why you should
