Simple Minds

(Megan Melara)
Simple Minds

I’m standing here on a blood-stained couch
With tired eyes and a more tired heart
Staring at the cowboy on the wall
Legs propped up on a rocking chair
Fishing pole dangling in the air
Sleeping like a baby in the night

Simple minds cross delicate lines
Each time you call my name
So how can you run before you crawl away?

I’m standing here by an open door
An hour’s passed and my insides hurt
I’m falling in my dreams and it just won’t end
I fall to the floor and bless my soul
I don’t think I could cry if I tried
Tonight I’m not going to try anymore

Simple minds cross delicate lines
Each time you call my name
So how can you run before you crawl away?

I’m standing here on a strange front porch
A year has passed and my heart still hurts
Even though I’m constantly in love
Yesterday I told myself better to love and maybe hurt
Than to never know the freedom that it brings

Simple minds cross delicate lines
Each time their hearts feel love
So how can you run before you crawl away?
