lyrics

you call through the moon to my window
oh, and i’ve known you would come
and you always could move me to follow
oh, but now i'm just numb
and up like the ivy you climb
promising heaven this time
and i loved you once and once and i could it again
now you say you want me back
you say you’ve changed but i’ve been hearing that

for way,
way too long
a year or two
you asked me to wait
for way, way too long
a year or two
is a year or two late

now don’t
don’t you cry there on my doorstep
don’t you shed one more tear
you who wrote the art of the arctic
the laws of veneer
you were born under stormier skies
the wind and the ice in your eyes
and here am i like mid-july
while your winters still rage
it’s not that i don’t like the cold
but my summer clothes have been growing old

for way,
way too long
a year or two
you asked me to wait
for way, way too long
a year or two
is a year or two late

you’re holding on a bit too late

now the ceiling is caved through the cracks
and we can’t go on, but we can’t go back
and i guess it’s true, i’m over you
you’re not what i need
your roses have been fading
in the vases where i laid them

for way,
way too long
a year or two
you asked me to wait
for way, way too long
a year or two
is a year or two late

you’re a year or two late
