lyrics

stop
with the implication you ever intended
to have me as more than a fixture
just let it go

all forms of communication: a catering
positive forms of interaction: a savoring
yes is the answer if the question is
asking if I can become the placeholder
after you cast me aside I doubt any longer
my reaction would be to abide

what to do now that your patience
is running against the clock?
I can't conceive a situation
where you aren't fed up with something
something's gotta give, but it won't be me
I'll be here

I will be here.
I will be here.
I will be here.
I will be here.

with an outstretched hand
you know there's no implication
with me
why oh why did you give me the green light
to take what I wanted
consent in the technical sense.

I know why
I know why
I know why I can't help you decide
help me decide
help me decide
tell me why I can't help you decide
tell me why
tell me why
tell me why you can't help me decide
help me decide
help me decide
tell me why I can't help you decide
