Can I Count on You?

lyrics

You’re trapped inside your head
Have you even heard, a word I’ve said
Will you open up and be you again
Or keep this up, right to the end
Hey that’s neither here nor there
Let me just clear the air

Can I count on you
To see this thing through
I want us to shine again
Like something old, made to feel brand new
But would we just be scraping the surface
Of the dirt and the rust
Ready to come back and cover us
At the first sign of rain or dust

Your hammer’s ready to fall
How it follows through, is your call
Will you help me build this house back up
Or just keep working at that wall
You put yourself behind
Please come out if you’re so inclined

Can I count on you
To see this thing through
I want us to shine again
Like something old, made to feel brand new
But would we just be scraping the surface
Of the dirt and the rust
Ready to come back and cover us
At the first sign of rain or dust

You’ve thrown me out to see
How life could be, without me
But it’s not just me, my skin’s not thick enough For all three, of us
Don’t talk at me under your breath
Just tell me all the lines you’ve transgressed

And why I can’t I count on you
To see this thing through
I wanted us to shine again
Like something old, made to feel brand new
But we would just be scraping the surface
Of the dirt and the rust
Ready to come back and cover us
At the first sign of rain or dust
