With the first light and the little fragile moon I was out on the porch now I'm ready for doom And it's funny how it all came to be The way you so plainly chose to stare at me And the afternoon embraces you like a million worried hands And I want to look forward go discover foreign land In the mirror I was balancing on tiny strings It looks silly but oh really it's just a physical thing So tell me why you'd ask me to do as I please I would rather fall backwards and forget everything And I've tried to call on you when I know you're not home I'm not ready for this but it's the way it goes It was easier when I knew nothing of what I'd missed You're so happy I can see it and that's the worst part of it So let her take you out on sea I will wave to you from the harbor oh little silly me The sailors leave in the morning I'll be waiting for you all night The ship sets off in the morning I'll be waiting for you all right
