The Wrong Way

from Beginners by Carly Taich

lyrics

Why do you look at me like you’re afraid?
I’m just a pilgrim finding my way
Held under stresses I pick up the messes I’ve made
I am no sunshine and I am no rain
Pick out the pieces you find most humane
Welcome the challenge, or bring on the fight
I can delete and I can re-write

Tell me tell me (oh)
Should I put my heart in your hands?
Tell me tell me (oh)
Should I raise hell or bring down heaven?
Tell me before I run the wrong way

I really like you, the way you’re arranged
But I still hold you expecting a change
Paint for me truth, you can’t
With a palate of gray

Tell me tell me (oh)
Should I put my heart in your hands?
Tell me tell me (oh)
Should I raise hell or bring down heaven?
Tell me before I run
Tell me before I run the wrong way

I could see our portrait in the sky
Partners in crime
Changing lives one step at a time
Now I might have to readjust my eyes
But what a beautiful picture it could be
So tell me…
Tell me
