lyrics

“Scattered”: that’s what you called me,
Each time I offered you all these million things.
“Stalwart”: that’s how you told me,
I should be focusing all my energies.

There was a time before I had learned,
You were not a man I should listen to.
There was a time before I had heard,
There were other sweet men.

“Coastward”: that’s where you told me,
I should be moving, and I should move there soon.
“Untoward”: that’s what you called me,
when my behavior was an affront to you.

I didn’t know enough not to cry,
When you cut me down in unsubtle ways.
I didn’t know enough not to leave,
As a way to fight back.

But, who was I that I should try to save,
The hold that you had on my beliefs?
And all the time I held my tongue,
Although I knew you were wrong.
