lyrics

Little Red Lines

Well, here I am;
I wish you would look away.
I’m not the man
I thought I was yesterday.
I always change,
and you stay just the same.
You don’t get angry;
you know I’m not to blame.

You say, “you’re caught in a war
that you’re not gonna win,
but if you knock on my door,
baby, I just might let you in.
I know shit can get real
when you stay in one place;
when you sit there and feel
what no amount of thinking can erase.”

But I’ve been doing my best
to be doing ok,
so lay off, man,
I’ve had a long day.

I was afraid
you would see through my smile
and know I can’t wait
to be alone for a while.
You know I love you
and hate to cause you pain,
but you’re bound to get a little roughed up
playing in the lion’s mane.

From the little red lines
to the wolves at the door,
I gave some warning signs
that were not so easy to ignore.
You say it’s easy to change,
but I stay just the same:
fickle and strange,
with one too many tigers to tame.

But I’ve been doing my best
to be doing ok,
so lay off, man,
I’ve had a long day.

Yeah I’ve been doing my best
to be doing ok,
so try to understand
I’ve come a long way.
