​A Mess to Be Made

This song is by The Format and appears on the album Interventions + Lullabies (2003).

In a dream that I can't seem to shake she is,
She is standing alone by the fence
I see tears in her eyes. why she cries
I just don't know what a mess that I make of my days
Then there's you, you're a mess to be made
And the dream starts to fade away

So you're leaving for months at a time
I help you out the door
But once you're gone
I just stare out the window
Please could you please come back home

What a mess that I make of my days trying to save myself (save myself)
Then there's you you're a mess to be made
A canvas only paint could change

And a voice on the other end of the phone says
Why don't you write a song about it well here it goes
I was raised on someting that you'll never know
Id hate this place if it weren't for the waves
If it werent fo r the fact that you love it
Where they measure a man on the money
He spends well my love is not a bank statement

What a mess that I make of my days trying to save myself (save myself)
Then there's you you're a mess to be made
A mess to be made
A mess to be made
And the dream starts to fade away.
