New #1 by Bob Mould
You, yeah, you always haul my ball and chain,
Right to there, the place where I get lost inside of you, yeah,
I see your face and hear your voice
Right through that which seems so hopeless and confusing.
Sometimes, I try too hard to separate the good times
From sadness that we've had together,
Balancing, I need to keep it all in some perspective,
Calm me down, I need you more than you will ever comprehend.
I don't want this to end, I can't lose one more friend,
I go through my regrets, and I return the compliments
And hope I find that innocence, I've got to be here,
No matter what happnes now.
Slow down, they say that time will tell the story,
It goes around,
But no one else could know what's here between us,
I sense this tension that I know so well,
But the calm I feel is being with you, near you constantly.
I can't wash this away, it's here to stay,
I need to cleanse my soul, these thoughts will make me lose control,
So if I lose control, don't leave me, you've got to be here, no matter what happens now
Trust me, I'm here for you with good intentions,
Trust in me, despite some times when I don't trust myself,
In myself, in my head, in my own confusion,
My confusion gets the best of me, my illusions set me free.
Free to dream about what I really need to set me free,
Is it you, is it me, what can I do to set you free,
To be real, to be with me when I need you,
Are you listening? Are you listening to me?
Tell me when I was controlling, sometimes I forget myself,
Forgive me for the thoughts I have, sometimes I think just like you,
Maybe I can't trust myself, I know that I can trust in you,
But I can't keep it to myself, I feel just like you.
