from The Set That Wasn't


she'll open her doorway eyes
she'll let you over but she won't tell you no lies
she'll let you love her till you
figure out yourself
that you're better off with someone else

she walks into anywhere
no one can explain why spring is in the air
almost unaware of that one
moment they forget
all the things that didn't work out right

the way that her hair falls
down through your fingers
and brushes against your chest
the way that she touches you
the way she just knows you
the way she will just forget

you'll want to call her name
you'll still believe that it can be the same
you'll wonder why you never
hear from her at all
if she'll just wake up and call and cry
and cry
and cry

the way that her hair falls
down through your fingers
and brushes against your chest
the way that she touches you
the way she just knows you
the way she will just forget
