about

This song tells the story of a love of convenience; used when needed, then discarded.

lyrics

and it's a shame that when it rains
you let me wipe my nose on your sweater till it's better
and I'm glitzy again

and then we're through, it's overdue
and all I needed was a little protection, misdirection
it has it's place and time

you bend so easily to light, to feed, to give
but you don't know the first thing about it

I always win so just give in
dry my tears and wrap me up in your praises and sweet faces
now the rips have been sewn

after not too long, it feels wrong
you'll notice me feeling awkward and resistant, a bit distant
then the book is snapped shut

you bend so easily to light, to feed, to give
but you don't know the first thing
and I don't know the first thing about it

you don't know
that I've got you wrapped around my finger
you don't know

you bend so easily to light, to feed, to give
but you don't know the first thing

it was my selfish intention to make me feel obligated
to line my scattered ducks back up in a row
I see I'm making you nauseous, I warn you to be more cautious
later on, so you don't stumble into people like me
what I really mean is

I've pulled the wool over your eyes
and it's too late

you bend so easily to light, to feed, to give
but you don't know the first thing
I don't know the first thing
we have always known the wrong things
and we need to find the right things
you don't know
