lyrics

Twisting in nature's beauty
You glide along so smoothly
When your blades are sharp
I watched you figure skating
But soon got tired of waiting
In the cold and dark

So I sent you straight to voicemail
When you called me on the phone
Another fifteen-minute message
There are things I wish I'd known
At the outset

I’ve got my share of baggage
Sometimes it's hard to manage
But I’m getting by
You were the perfect bandage
A lifetime’s wisdom packaged
In a stable mind

But apply the slightest pressure
And the cracks begin to show
You take delight in self-deception
There are things I wish I'd known
At the outset

I believe that people can change
But there are some traits set in stone
We are all victim to our habits
There are things I wish I'd known
At the outset
