lyrics

WHO CAN SAY

verse: G D C G G D Bm C
chorus: Em C G G
bridge: D D C G x2 D Daug

you tasted your wine & you wasted my time
oh you made up your mind in a moment
well if choice is so free it's imprisoning me
you work so hard to be my opponent
come down or come clean no one else has been
instrumental indeed to my progress
well you taught me denial with an elegant smile
yes i've lived here a while with this whole mess

CH
& who can say? who can say?
there's words on my tongue & they won't go away
who can say?

all the sunsets still last in our tangled up past
even dawn can't relax all those portraits
but sharing in tears it becomes a career
& your heart disappears in your fortress

[CH]

BR
keep hanging on for everyone's sake
until everyone feels so bent they will break
& excuses abound oh it's time to take some time

...take my time

oh time is at hand well whatever you've planned
it's not gonna land without folding
in truth i was worse but i didn't rehearse
until naming the curse i've been holding

[CH] x2
