I used to fall asleep to you speaking to me
I don't listen to anything
I have nothing to do at first
I'm just so tired of thinking about everything
It's not that I'm afraid of being alone
I just don't know what to do with my time
Between you and me, I thought that we would all
Have so much longer

But I'm learning to lie in the quiet light
While I watch the sky go from black to gray
Learning how not to die, inside a little of the time
I tihnk about you and wonder if you are away

You don't know anything
I think about you way more than anything else
I'm not that spiritual, I still go wild all the time
Through department stores
Everything I need, but none of this is getting me
Anywhere good
Between you and me, I still fall apart at the
Thought of your voice

But I'm learning to lie here in the quiet light
While I watch the sky go from black to gray
Learning how not to die, inside a little of the time
I think about you and wonder if you are away

And I'm learning to live inside the heart that you give
Nothing I wouldn't do for another few years
Learning how not to cry every time there's another
Sad saturday morning
So tell me: there's nothing I can do again ever?

It's you that I think I hear in the quiet light
Am I crazy?
You're nowhere near me
Guess I don't know what I'm saying
Just call me, I'll come to where you are
Alone in the quiet light

I'm always thinking you're behind me
And I turn around and you're always there

All I need is a time and place to be
I will meet you in silence alone, right away
What you think I am, well, it's never been me
You're everything I need right way
