lyrics

I sat on a fence
Enjoying the view
Everything looks happy
Balanced and nothing new

It's as easy as
My favorite chair
I sleep well at night
The stars are only out at night, nothing new

Oh but you
You have taken me
And I
Am only swimming in your wide blue eyes

Oh but you
You have taken me
And I cannot recall sleeping nights

I stay here in the South
You make your way to the North
How long should I wait
How long can you wait
I search these maps so desperately
How far away is Michigan
And is it worth the risk I be fooled again

Oh but you
You have taken me
And I, oh I am terrified

Oh but you
You have taken me
Tied me to a tree
And I am scared of a wildfire

Oh but you
You have taken me
And I, oh I am terrified

Oh but you
You have taken
And this is a delicate wildfire

I sat on a fence
But I could not stay on
Nothing here is balanced
Everything is new
