lyrics

I can't write these words
Share my feelings
Cause someone might read them
And know all my fears
So just lean in real close
And I'm gonna whisper my secrets to the cave of your ear

I'm listening to library books on tape
But they don't make sense without words on a page
My mind gets distracted and carried away
Like a glass bottled letter for the ocean to take
My body's on fire I can't even cry
I wanna find a nice porch swing and wait there to die

I can't eat though I want to
Probably throw up what I consume
My eyes are shut but the orange spots are a girl I once knew
And I'd talk to her but she's flown like a bird
And I'll write no more love songs until she returns

I'm listening to library books on tape
But they don't make sense without words on a page
My mind gets distracted and carried away
Like a glass bottled letter for the ocean to take
My body's on fire I can't even cry
I wanna find a nice porch swing and wait there to die

You're buying a boat and you're sailing away
Along crooked rivers to a Tennessee lake
It's dark and you're lost and your eyes are like weights
I hope you don't sink her I hope you stay awake

I tried to meet Jesus in Heaven today
I was hoping and praying he'd let me escape
But he said I'm not leaving
He said I had to stay

And listen to library books on tape
But they don't make sense without words on a page
My body's on fire I can't even cry
I wanna find a nice porch swing and wait there to die
