lyrics

Lyrics:

Gone for now and I won't be long.
No I can't be long, if there's love to be found.
Gone for now, and I won't be long.
No I won't be long, if there’s love to be found…

You're the only one who listens to me.
You're the only one who entertains my dreams.
Dreams of frustrations, internal combustion,
keeps playing my head, keeps play in my head.
You're the only one who calms me down-
calms me down, without even a word.

CHORUS

“Stay by me,” she begs and she pleads.
On bended knees, she flops like a fish-
she is gasping for air, as she flounders to find
the words that so often are plaguing her mind,
“You're the only one who unpuzzles my pieces,
so why are you leaving my side?”

CHORUS

This bed where we lay is comfy for sure,
but we're facing catastrophe, certainly atrophy,
if we stay here its-- coming quite clear,
the world could be ending-- and we'd still be dying.
But something's not right-- The feelings all wrong.
Holding my body-- from feeling so lovely.
Centripetal motion-- the waves of the ocean,
regardless of weather-- I'm losing devotion…

CHORUS

But I can't stay much longer,
or my life will be squandered --
Crushed by your radiant waves.
Won't you let me go, girl?
I'm dying to know
if I'll ever just make myself proud.

And though I may love you, much more than I have to,
there are things that I just have to do.

Gone for now, and I won't be long.
Won’t be long, now there's love to be found.
Gone for now, but I promise you,
I’ll be back real soon, as soon as I take out the trash…
