Until You Understand Lyrics

by Kings of Convenience

It's hard to stay
It's hard to look into your eyes
When I say I'm leaving

I can't be sure
But I think I made up my mind
Although your heart is bleeding

I wish the only one
I had to be was me
For you to see this clearly

I wish the only thing
I had to do was to
Hold my arms around you

So long, so hard
Until you understand
So long, so hard
Until you understand

And somehow I feel
I'm pulling away your ground
Before I've even started

To realize my words
Have caught you by surprise
Makes it even harder

I wish there was a way
To make you read the signs
I'm bringing you this evening

I wish the only thing
I had to do was to
Hold my arms around you

So long, so hard
Until you understand
So long, so hard
Until you understand
