lyrics

I waited four years for someone
Who never showed up at all
I wasted away my time
And now I'm washed away
Glowing in the snow
Mountain boys and girls
And I won't talk to anyone of them
They all hurt the same
Oh, joyous days
I'm counting all the ways
I feel like I'm something else
The untouched book
Forgotten shelf
I want to be free
I want to feel what it's like to be touched and sought after
But I'm a natural disaster
And now I'm washed away

I've got a secret, it's mine
And it's been messing me up inside
I'm gonna keep it
I'm shy when it comes to laying it on the line
Maybe that's why I'm so fine wasting away all this precious time
We all have our secrets and Clementines
We all have those things that we choose to hide

Way deep in our minds
There's darkness to find
Way deep in our minds

I used to think I loved to be all by myself
But I just want that option
I don't function all that well here with myself

I've got a secret, it's mine
And it's been messing me up inside
I'm gonna keep it
I'm shy when it comes to laying it on the line
Maybe that's why I'm so fine wasting away all this precious time
We all have our secrets and Clementines
We all have those things that we choose to hide

You're there inside
What is it like
Being so beautiful
Passing the time
Loving the wine
Laughing for hours
Remaining beautiful
What if I was
There in the crowd
Would I stand out
Would I be beautiful
I just need you to say
You can't look away
I love the power
We all love the power

We all love the power
And if you say you don't love it, you're a liar
There's darkness in all of us
Burning and screaming for power!!

Memories holding onto my waist
Play with me, dancing in a sweet taste
Melody, harmony, spring days
Stay with me, tell me that we're ready
For a finer stage, flowers at our feet
Fine wine, we'll age, spinning down a rain soaked street in May
Funny how we're ruined by games we play

And who am I to say I'm any better than you
We're a couple saps, can't kick the blues
Just a couple saps, can't kick the blues
Just a couple saps, can't kick the blues
How dare I even say I’m any better than you!!
We're a couple saps, can't kick the blues
Just a couple saps, can't kick the blues
Just a couple saps, so blue
