lyrics

Life can be a problem
when you’re eager to begin
and your chains have missed the mark
as you open all the windows
to a world you want to see,
but you never need to touch

I know that you believe
that if the love you should receive
would ever really be enough,
then the god of compromise
would swiftly open up our eyes
and ease the diamond from the rough

So how can I convey
that you’re pissing it away?
What else can I say, Emily Jane?

What is too foolish to be said
is sung by idiots instead
Who watch the world pass by from bed

You’re tumbling around
inside dreams and paper crowns

Just live your life instead, Emily Jane
