lyrics

Let me go first get through this thing I’ve half rehearsed
a hundred times for you
I knew you’d make it harder be there waiting at the far end of the field
where I last saw you
You’ll twist the knife invite me home that very night
to a party of a thousand old acquaintances
You make your toast you raise a glass and just say “home”

I’ll wait for more
for all those other ways you’ll find
to hit me even harder than you did before

Last I recall I was just east of Avignon
I wasn’t far from you
She brought me to her place and taught me harrow taught me every way to take her
Taught me how to say her name, asked
How I’ll keep it up in that city I don’t love
“Now that you’ve been down on me
Cause I can tell you can’t afford to live this well”

While I wait for more
for all those other ways you’ll find
to hit me even harder than you did before

Is it my turn now to talk?
Here’s your mistake, you think each reference that you make
is worth the reverence you’re been trying to replace
and I’m not sure that you felt a single word

But I’ll wait for more
for all those other ways you’ll find
to hit me even harder

If I’d gone first got through the thing that I’d rehearsed
ten thousand times for you
You’d know that I’m not here to make it hard or watch you kneel or hear you ask me
If I have to use your name
You’d know I came just because I couldn’t wait
Just to see you from a distance coming back to me
and I’m not sure if you can hear a single word I say
