lyrics

Oh, I wish the dust could settle
Before you heard this song
But the timing is bad, and our hearts are awful
At not beautifully getting along.

We tell them every day to be patient,
To put the fire out
But they will not listen, they’re stubbornly fishin’
For the words stuck in our mouths.

Springtime rain melts the snow, I hope you know
These flood waters are sitting around.
Someday, the dam will open, I hope you’re hoping
To be drowned.

Sometimes, I ask would this be simpler
If we let it die?
Could I give up now? Could I just skip town?
Is that my heart’s design?

But if I’m being really honest,
If I can tell you the truth.
This heart of mine has waited all this time,
And would wait always for you.

Springtime rain melts the snow, I hope you know
These flood waters are spinnin’ around.
Someday, the dam will open, I hope you’re hoping
To be drowned.

Oh, the words we never say,
Well, your eyes say them every day.
Oh, the words I said I’d save,
Well I said them anyway.
Well, they live here on this page.
They melt away with the rain.

Someday, the dam will open, I hope you’re hoping
To get swept away.
