You never understand
You got a lot to lose
It’s burning in your hand
The language you should use
Is hanging on your tongue
The syllables in wait
The summer you were young
The promises you’d break

And understanding still eludes you

You lose your love
You’ll take another one
It breaks your heart
You should break another one
And all along
You think you’re innocent
But you know you’re wrong
You’ve had a lot to forget

You never turn around
You never watch your back
Expecting every sound
Aware of every step
Aware of every mode
The subtle shifting signs
the language you should hold
intuitive and kind

But all the meaning still escapes you

If you lose heart
You’d be a bitter one
If it breaks apart
You can’t get another one
And all along
You thought you were innocent
But you were wrong
You’ve had yourself to forgive
