lyrics

How unexpected
And sweet
And cool
To get a smile and a day with you
But it was nothing
It was nothing
I had to play everything just right
I was an island when you stayed the night
But it was nothing
It was nothing

And I will hold out my desperate hand
And I won't understand:
This was never close.
Hold out the rest of my days
I will go to my grave thinking:
So so close.

You said some nice shit about my eyes
While your hand brushed against my thigh
But it was nothing
It was nothing

And I will hold out my desperate hand
And I won't understand:
This was never close.
Hold out the rest of my days
I will go to my grave thinking:
So so close.

I let you go
And I begged you back
Then I let you go again
And I begged you back
Then I let you go again
And I begged you back
Then I let you go again
And you never came back.

And I will hold out my desperate hand
And I won't understand:
This was never close.
Hold out the rest of my days
I will go to my grave thinking:
So so close.
