lyrics

i was a seventeen-year-old
on a lifeguard stand
with nervous hands

when i learned to play guitar
to impress some man
with callous hands

distortion is a way to hide mistakes, baby,
do you want to play?

i was halfway out the door
when i looked at you
and watched the room

change shape
bending all the space
between us two
mouths that move

you taught me the harmonies to religious pieces
though you don’t believe

all that i do
i just do to feel the glory
of impressing you
nameless men who write my story

unrequited love is the source of my transforming
i’d do it for me but, sweet baby, that sounds boring

“i don’t want you anymore.”
i wish i knew. i wish i knew.
pick my clothes up off your floor.
i wish i knew. i wish i knew.

i guess i’m alone again
the siren songs are written in the silence
this quiet violent pain…

all that i do
i just do to feel the glory
of impressing you
nameless men who write my story

unrequited love is the source of my transforming
i’d do it for me but, sweet baby, that sounds boring

behold the glory of my transforming
behold the glory of my transforming…
