lyrics

Never been a pretty crier, so I hope the news is good soon
You can nip this bullshit with a capital B right in the bud
Acumen that I admire, they made a permanent northpaw out of you
I hope this is up your avenue or in your ballpark
Worry's in my line of country and naturally the reason we're crepuscular
Bats that never rest

And it explains why
We move through the night softly
And about the house quietly
Doc, please give me
A reason not to cope with leaving

When I'm there, I swear, I'll take A Moveable Feast out east
Try to see what's in it that you had to've seen
Go back to my youth, prior to strife, we turn on NatGeo
We see old women, once little girls, and the perils of Chinese feet binding
What's the gown done to you? Doc, give this man a second to breathe
I heard over the phone unease

And it explains why
We move through the night softly
And about the house quietly
Doc, please give me
A reason not to cope with leaving

We move through the night softly
And about the house quietly
Doc, please give me
A reason not to think he's leaving
