Lyrics

subtle things i’m settling a hope and i’m writing down directions inviting you to look because it’s easier to humor your sense of obligation than to borrow what you took these certainties i’ve kept but i can count them on my fingers i used to borrow what you took from me these subtleties you’ve missed when you should have paid attention but you were taught to overlook these things all of these things it was a flashlight in the waning moonlight you were torn by your instincts and the threat of a fluke you should have run with what you took far away from all of these things but instead you scribble down a note it’s in response to my directions and i’m tempted to overlook this time but pride can be a senseless backdrop to your sense of obligation and you’ve been ready to respond for some time to all of these things
