  1. Break In

From the album Tied Tight

Lyrics

You’re throwing pots and pans at me, like I’m trying to rob your house
All ‘cause those words dropped out, fell like bombs from my open mouth
You’re taking all your injuries, you’re laying them at my feet
And some blame belongs to me, but I can’t be the only one

Would it be so wrong if we belonged
What if we both felt better

I’m not trying to break in where I shouldn’t go
I’m just trying to make my way back home

You place your calls when you’re alone, when self-control’s out of town
At midnight your walls break down; you dial all on your own
I know exactly what’s in store: our strange mix of sharp and sad
It comes out in cuts and stabs, but I’m taking what I can get

It’s taken you so long to feel this strong
How come you just seem weaker

I’m not trying to break in where I shouldn’t go
I’m just trying to make my way back home
