lyrics

Jealousy is haunting me
I'll knock you down so I can breathe
And pick you up when I'm in need
It's push and shove and blood and greed
And love obscured by jealousy

Old man led by the hand
Speaks so loud with a quiet stare
An expression that I've seen before
But, mostly, I don't understand
This old man

I could do in just one night
Things I've put off all my life
I'm sitting here now with a picture in my mind
Wondering if it's not too late this time

A thousand lies that I have told
Can't take them back when I get old
Maybe that's what it's all about
Regret is part of coming out
Forgive me now, I have contrived
A thousand lies

Humility is looking for me
I'll tell you now what I can see
I'd give you love unqualified
Unpiled by confusion and lies
If I could get some sleep tonight
And wake up with humility
