lyrics

sometimes I wait for you in places
where we might get to speak
and we can talk a while about the weather

and you probably don't notice
how I hang on every breath
and a prayer that I might just say something clever

because there's things I'd like to tell you
and there's things I'd like to know
but tonight, we'll have to settle for movies and records

because everything that I could say
has been said by better men before
and I can't bear the thought to give you lesser

but I don't need to find my place
in those songs they wrote
I just want to find my way into
your Liner Notes

so in a few clever lines
a repetition and a rhyme
alliteration and some subtle imagery

I see your face a thousand times
in every song that they could write
configuration of my heart on their sleeves

but I don't need to find my place
in those songs they wrote
I just want to find my way into
your Liner Notes

someday I'll bring poets and prophets
from their feet and to the ground
until then, I'll see you around

so when you think my feet are dragging
or I'm fumbling on my words
or my balance seems a little less than sturdy

please don't let it be off-putting
I'm just running through my head
for a few good words for you that could be worthy

but I don't need to find my place
in those songs they wrote
I just want to find my way into
your Liner Notes
