lyrics

Fly away on a big jet plane
I’ll be fine, I won’t go insane
Or feel the fear in my bones
That I can’t do it all on my own

And you could talk to me at night
Lay your head down by my side
Tangle me up in your strings
Add on to my list of things
But when I’m calling out your name
You’re standing still and out of frame
And when I’m asking for your help
I’m only talking to myself

Complications will ensue
A consequence of loving you
But measured out and understood
Ain’t a way I’d go, darling, if I could

So call me a fool, call me names
Call me out for all the ways
I come up short, that’s just the way
Love will go when love goes away

And you could talk to me at night
Lay your head down by my side
Tangle me up in your strings
Add on to my list of things
But when I’m calling out your name
You’re standing still and out of frame
And when I’m asking for your help
I’m only talking to myself

All my memories on the floor
Don’t matter much to me anymore
Faces blurred by time gone past
The ache of love I lost at last
The ache of love I lost

And you could talk to me at night
Lay your head down by my side
Tell me all the things you do
How all I have, I owe to you
But when I’m calling out your name
You’re standing still and out of frame
And when I’m asking for your help
I’m only talking to myself
