(a nice one to read with the music video below playing in the background…per usual.)

another near miss
all the times you look
and almost crash right into
this talk of destruction
and you want me to lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged me

see i know love
and i’ve had it forever
and i love what’s inside
the imperfection around all of us

there’s a reason that i am
and everything i do
but i’ll sell you a line
maybe one or two
and you can use them
they’ll undo

another near miss
all the time we took
and almost fall right into
this talk of corruption
and you want me to lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged me

see i don’t fear love
and we’ve had it forever
and i love what’s inside
the imperfection in all of us

so i’ll hold up this mirror
and let you see everything i do
and maybe you’ll crack
just a line or two
and he’ll use them
they’ll undo

oh yes i understand
oh yes
take my hand
oh no
quicksand

see this is my heart
and did you ever ask
what’s not broken
pinball machine player
eager token

another near miss
your head in a book
and almost sunk right into
this talk of presumption
but i won’t lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged
you

“i have only love…”
