today the rain is falling in the kitchen from my shelf
I’ve wrapped up all my pennies and there’s nothing left to sell
they say I’ve been alone so long I’ve forgotten how to dream
perhaps it’s they who have forgotten what dreaming really means

mister she said someday I’m gonna wear your ring
she told me that a thousand times ‘til I believed the same
but I’m no fool I know the winds of change blow gently on her face
couldn’t keep her a moment more with the sturdiest of chains

the more we learn the less we know
still it burns like the sun upon the snow
oh you say you’ve got it figured out
but I promise you this
there’s still room for doubt

now I believe in miracles and yes even in fate
but there’s only one way to describe the look upon your face
you’ll be here ‘til the morning not a moment more
our friendship frowns on traveling beyond this bedroom door

the more we learn the less we know
still it burns like the sun upon the snow
oh you say you’ve got it figured out
but I promise you this
there’s still room for doubt

ah yes, the morning
where we always fall apart
a lover’s revenge
the dagger through the heart

damned if I knew what it was finally sent her away
stood there in the kitchen gathering up the fallen rain
yes my friends I’ll share with you while she was good enough
perhaps not so good I could afford to give her all my love

the more we learn the less we know
still it burns like the sun upon the snow
oh you say you’ve got it figured out
but I promise you this
there’s still room
