four a.m. blues

lyrics

To be frank I feel miserable
Thinking about you without you
And I should be elated to see you
But I fear it will only make me more blue
When expectations are not met
"Do not fret" she says
And I'm a diamond in the rough
Do you see me, my love?

I swore to never say never
Or trouble in paradise
Kiss me through your eyes
Barefoot I'm walking on eggshells
To be near you
When will you realize?

I've been watching the clock now
For what seems like ages, 50 pages
Baby we've been trying to relate so long
Feels like we're on pause
Is it a lost cause?
When feelings hurt or times get rough
Is love enough?
And all I've wanted from the start
Sooth my burning heart

I swore to never say never
Or trouble in paradise
Kiss me through your eyes
Barefoot I'm walking on eggshells
To be near you
When will you realize?

In this heavy chest
My heart beats for the East
But it longs to go West

And I swore to never say never
Or trouble in paradise
Kiss me through your eyes
Barefoot I'm walking on eggshells
To be near you
When will you realize?
