She Says

Breathing in the seasons changing
She says I worry about you sometimes
Purple silence echoes after her voice
Like the sunrise replaces the night
Maybe you can sing me to sleep
Maybe I could write a book about weightlessness
Maybe I could just get onto a bus and
Find a new place to start myself over again

She says are you all right
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine
She says do you miss me tonight
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine

Open window invitation
And it looks like the world's all stop motion animated
And she comes and goes and I
Continue to stare down this mess I've create so 
I won't go out again today
Ask me tomorrow and find me a grave man
So maybe I'll just pack up my bags and guitar and go
Find a new place to start myself over again

She says are you all right
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine
She says do you miss me tonight
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine

Breathing in the seasons changing
Feels like I've been here before once or twice
I remember the smell of these streets
And the smell of her sheets after I spent the night
In a late winter's dawn 
Is a midsummer's dream
And maybe this town makes me smaller than you know
As I lie awake hearing you talk in your sleep
Think I found a new place to start myself over again

She says are you all right
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine
She says do you miss me tonight
I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine

SHE SAYS
