mind twists like a hanger thatâ€™s rusted and bent
dangling off of the clothes rack all metal and dents
if you asked me Iâ€™d tell you I donâ€™t have a clue
â€˜cause I keep getting five when I add two and two
Iâ€™m just a girl who can feel all alone
Iâ€™m singing and crying at night when Iâ€™m home
but you come along, with your words so damn sweet
Iâ€™m with him, I know, so then why did we meet?
something pulled us together like opposite poles
something, someone out there already knows
our future, my questions, the barrier of him
if you wanted my heart in a heartbeat youâ€™d win
dimes tumble down into wishing-well faith
I succumb and step back, giving in every day
but I wonâ€™t â€˜cause I canâ€™t, you know how I feel
he may not treat me right but Iâ€™m head over heels
with him - and with you - like a tangle of thread
itâ€™s funny the way things can get so complex
morphing faster than light, multiplying like tens
just in seconds, an instant, a breathless moment...
my mind is a knot of uneven odds
Iâ€™m surrounded by beauty, by marshes and bogs
when I count to three and come back to life
who might have stayed, what might I find?
mind like a hanger in rough callused hands
someone whoâ€™s stopped caring and I understand
if feelings were easy Iâ€™d choose no or yes
but if feelings were easy weâ€™d be colorless.
