I sit two stories above the street
It's awful quiet here since love fell asleep
There's life down below me though
The kids are walking home from school

Some long ago when we were taught
That for whatever kind of puzzle you got
You just stick the right formula in
A solution for every fool

I remember the time when I came so close to you
Sent me skipping my class and running from school
And I bought you that ring 'cause I never was cool

What makes me think I could start clean slated?
The hardest to learn was the least complicated

Oh I just sit up in the house and resist
And not be seen until I cease to exist
A kind of conscientious objection
A kind of dodging the draft

The boy and girl are holding hands on the street
And I don't want to but I think you just wait
It's more than just eye to eye
Learn the things I could never apply

I remember the time when I came so close with you
I let everything go it seemed the only truth
And I bought you that ring, it seemed the thing to do

What makes me think I could start clean slated?
The hardest to learn was the least complicated
So what makes me think I could start clean slated?
The hardest to learn was the least complicated

I'm just a mirror of, a mirror of myself
All the things that I do
And the next time I fall I'm gonna have to recall
It isn't love, it's only something new

I sit two stories above the street
It's awful quiet here since love fell asleep
There's life down below me though
The kids are walking home from school

I remember the time when I came so close with you
Sent me skipping my class and running from school
And I bought you that ring 'cause I never was cool

What makes me think I could start clean slated?
The hardest to learn was the least complicated
So what makes me think I could start clean slated?
The hardest to learn was the least complicated
The least complicated
The least complicated
