So hesitation pulled me back
I'm stronger when I don't attract
In your eyes I'm a lamb without a rack
And I am getting confused

I'm a cactus trying to be a canoe
As you pan for ore
In the desert floor I say to you

That I could never imagine a place so beautiful
I could never steal your gold away

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you

My book is called "The Ascent Of Man"
I marked your chapter with a catamaran
The accent's off but I am what I am

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you

I looked for you, it's my last grandstand
A motor scooter goat legged pan
Figure eighting in quicksand

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you

I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you

So hesitation pulled me back
I'm so in love I don't attract
With my hands tied I won't crack
