lyrics

Passed you on the way down,
caught your eyes then hit the ground.
Cursed myself and found my feet but tripped on what I could not see.
Above my head you took your seat,
and laughed at all I could not be.
My ladder's gone the rungs worn out, the stars, my head, my heart too loud.

Don't wash your hands and walk away,
and think the things you could not say.
Go find a road and ware it out and see what life below's about.
Lose my mind from what I've found, passed again on the way down.

Wisely, slow, and full of grace
she moves her hands over her face.
First a minute then a year, and still my minds not really clear.
Will I ever see the sun, will I ever learn to run.
Wind me up and let me go, oh love me fast and kill me slow.
Love me fast and kill me slow.

Don't wash your hands and walk away,
and think the things you could not say.
Go find a road and ware it out and see what life below's about.
Lose my mind from what I've found, passed again on the way down.
