8/20/1995 alternate lyrics

Old but oh sometimes
when I lie on my back
stare up at the sky
I wonder oh
why do I stare in the lives a bunch
but are all undoubtedly the best
but there stare the mother could
oh fool I don't know I wonder
we need a place to go
in it I'll find ourselves quiet here
sin and listen for all the things
that I don't know oh I'm gonna hear it all

one again I stand by this fence
and wonder if it means Ii don't commit at all
oh to walk these arranged marriages
what I see in our floors
that float so think in this
I don't want any part of it
I'd rather think a man moves
and shred away

and the horrible end wonders he goes

so what would you be here in the know
if you seeming to know more too
well then compromise your soul
oh for somebody's point of view

oh I've got no patience for this
we'll pick the best if you don't like any of them
I know I won't pick any of these
I know it's a disease you're feeding
I know I'd rather be the air so dirty
with these lies are spinning out of you now
oh you must think I'm as dumb as able love

oh my oh might look her in her room for in father
and oh I'll walk I'll walk
not all day
come out it and play

come out every whore
and find the old persistence rested
in my mind I fall out
I fall out like i beg it breaks
oh you above I go I wait
and who'll say
I must be irritate of all the problems of a life
and you won't need me again
oh well don't believe the words of silence

oh a song
a song
my song
oh way over the way
above we'll sit high
ankle thigh
main lyrics
Come and see
I swear by now I'm playing time against my troubles, oh
oh, I'm coming slow but speeding
do you wish a dance and while I'm in the front
the play on time is won
oh, but the difficulty's coming here

I will go in this way
and find my own way out
I won't tell you to be
but it's coming to much more
come down, the ghosts come back reeling in you now
oh, what if they came down crashing?
in a way I used to play for all of the loneliness that nobody notices now
oh, begging, slow, I'm coming here

Only waiting
I wanted to stay, I wanted to play, I wanted to love you
I'm only this far, and only tomorrow leads the way
I'm coming waltzing back and moving into your head

Please, I wouldn't pass this by
oh, I wouldn't take any more than what sort of man goes by?
I will bring water
why won't you ever be glad it melts into wonder?
I came in praying for you
why won't you run into the rain and pray
and let tears splash all over you?
