Charmed and Borrowed

She walks into the room wearing nothing but a smile
Says, “boy the time has come, you’ve been gone too long”
Always full of these little surprises everywhere I turn
Never falls apart never comes undone
Still I always take too long
I never know my lines but I fit the part
If you’re gonna take a chance, take a chance on me
In everything she says there’s a little hint of empty
Keep it simple, no one gets hurt

Be with me
It’s time to mean the words you said to me

Knocked back by the challenges
Yeah, but I’m not one to run away from a fight like you do when the damage is done
She says, “how come everything has to be so goddamned complicated?”
I wish I had an answer for that
I only wished for something just a little more than pleasing
If all the pieces ever see the light
Silence

We’ll never be a perfect team
Dancing on the light between my dreams
Hold it up for us to see
Call it what you want, at least it’s clean

She’s always full of the little surprises everywhere I turn
She always falls apart when the day is done
She walks into the room, says, “boy won’t you come with me?
You know you never know you always leave too soon.”

So just stay with me
And dance along the light between my dreams
Hold it up for us to see
Call it what you want, at least it’s clean
