Linger On
Step out to clutch the evening air
Distraction from your disrepair
And all of those who say they know

And walk the balustrade till dawn
You won't blink and you won't yawn
Never let your weakness show

And though I keep your picture on the wall
Unplug the phone in case you call
Dust collects upon the sill

And still you misplace all your faith in words
As though you'll ever feel assured
If you don't know, you never will

But no I never meant you any harm
Suffocating shelter of your arms
And if I let you down, it
Wasn't me, but you who kept me 'round
Linger on, linger on

And while your tears fall down his cheek
For the fallen, small and meek
Look what the invalids compose

Well he should've warned you from the start
Another callus on the heart
Another victim of the throes

And me, I'm in the company of thieves
They get their word in, then they leave
Such a false affair

But who am I to claim such moral highs
And though my judgement on the night
As though I'm so aware

No I never meant you any harm
Suffocating shelter of your arms
And if you should feel betrayed
It wasn't me, but you who made me stay
Linger on, linger on

Well I'll take your convalescent dreams
Patch the wounds and sew the seams
Get you ready for the fall

But should you miss me when I'm gone
Girl your memory serves you wrong
You never needed me at all

But you can miss the hollow of my hand
And all the lives that we had planned
And all the jealousies you sowed

And I'll take back the youth you can't repay
All the hours I gave away
And all the lies I never told

And no I never meant you any harm
Suffocating shelter of your arms
And if I did you wrong
It wasn't me, but you who wrote this song
Linger on, linger on
