Thought I Knew

from by Melanie Dewey

lyrics

do you notice when you stop and look
your life is like a boring book
the middle stretching on and on
no climax just around the corner from you
so you walk around until you’re blue
and you try and enjoy the view.

But everywhere I turn, I’m lost
this maze is turning me to dust

‘cause I thought that I knew everything
until you showed up at my door
and the night I let you in my bed
I knew that I was done for
I never knew what the sun could do
until it lit up your face
and I never thought the world could turn so slowly
until you walked away.

When I try to put these thoughts to words,
they flutter in my head like birds
each one of them trying to speak,
but one by one I shut their beaks
‘cause they won’t form a line you see,
or wait their turn, those selfish things

but at least they make me feel at home.
and with them here, I’m not alone.

‘cause I thought that I knew everything
until you showed up at my door
and the night I let you in my bed
I knew that I was done for
I never knew what the sun could do
until it lit up your face
and I never thought the world could turn so slowly
until you walked away.

just tell me one thing, do you miss me
do you miss me, oh?
and every time it rains, do you wish we
were trapped inside with nowhere else to go,
not bothered by the cold?
