alone sometimes You say that you've got to run but you don't know what you're running from still you turn and fly away, away you want to float into the setting sun but your wings would melt before the flight's begun still you turn and fly away, away you fall in love with everyone but you won't get close to anyone still you turn and fly away, away ---------------- running in the rain, soaking up the shame I don't remember my own last name letting go the pain that's been weighing on my brain I can't recall what I did today ---------------- I don't want to live a lonely life I don't want to live a lonely life you don't need to be a stoneman's wife but I need to be alone sometimes alone sometimes

if it's good enough for you Say your rosary for me one time, just count along the beads may your prayers ring out in peace as they float into the mist like a lifeboat lost at sea I was climbing on the roof, I was hanging from the eaves they were all filled up with leaves and the breeze was blowing by it was rushing through the trees sounding like a symphony, at least it did to me and I was laying in the grass and the clouds were rolling past you were sitting on my knees looking right into my eyes telling me your little lies but that was good enough for me if it's good enough for you then it's good enough for me that's really all I need if it's good enough for you then it's good enough for me that's really all I need there were scratches on the chairs the chairs were scratching up the floors and the floors had just been cleaned the lamps were full of dust hinges eaten up by rust dusk was falling on the street i went walking down a lane saw a garden in the shade people unwinding from their week a group of friends was drinking wine they were getting high they never noticed me I thought I might not ever go back home but I came back and you were waiting up for me i didn't mean to make you cry girl you know i lose my mind sometimes but you help me find it when I'm lost and weak when I'm lost at sea seems every single week if it's good enough for you then it's good enough for me that's really all i need if it's good enough for you then it's good enough for me that's really all i need people saying what they feel is not always what they mean that's why we learn to read the glimmer in the eye, the gentle quiver of the cheek, the pause before you speak the things that people want aren't always what they need aren't always what they seem the words that people say aren't always what they feel aren't always what they mean if it's good enough for you then it's good enough for me that's really all i need
