lyrics

You belong
On the far side of the mountains
In the gold
On the line of the horizon
You belong
In a place where no one goes.
Where no one goes.

You belong
In an unfinished painting
Wrapped in plastic
Locked in a closet
You belong
In a place where no one goes.
Where no one goes.

Drawing you in constellations
Scorched in the dirt of a cornfield
Pushing the phone into its cradle
Again
Again and again
And I'll never win
But neither will you.

Every look a domino
And every sigh in stereo
And maybes dress as hidden yesses
Every time you don't say no
And everything's obsession
When you can't quit cold
And everything is muzak
When your life's on hold
Now I stare at the ceiling
And try to tune in
To echoes of something
That won't come again
This is where you belong:
Sentenced to one night as me

You belong
On the floor in the corner
Reading this
Off an old sheet of paper
You belong
In a place where no one goes.
Where no one goes.

Writing our names in the window steam
Measuring time in creamers and coffee rings
Slamming the door, getting on with our lives
Again
Again and again
And I'll never win
But neither will you.
