I’m only this far…

Come and see

I swear by now I’m playing time against my troubles

I’m coming slow but speeding

Do you wish a dance and while

I’m in the front

The play on time is won

But the difficulty is coming here

I will go in this way

And find my own way out

I won’t tell you what to be

But I’m coming to much more


All at once the ghosts come back

Reeling in you now

What if they came down crushing

Remember when I used to play for

All of the loneliness that nobody

Notices now

I’m begging slow I’m coming here

Only waiting

I wanted to stay

I wanted to play,

I wanted to love you

I’m only this far

And only tomorrow leads my way

I’m coming waltzing back and

Moving into your head

Please, I wouldn’t pass this by

I wouldn’t take any more than

What sort of man goes by

I will bring water

Why won’t you ever be glad

It melts into wonder

I came in praying for you

Why won’t you run

In the rain and play

Let the tears splash all over you
