Doubt’s pullin’ me, pullin’ me
The way the moon is pullin’ on the sea
Too wide for these eyes to see
I only know it by the shifting seams

They break so fast
And run right back
To what they know

Rain’s comin’ down, comin’ down
On the windows that I’m staring out
A fear in my core longs for more
To be remembered or respected for

And at times I’d take
Any break
Because a man alone is desperate to be great

The white kettle sings out in heat
To where you’re waiting in the tangled sheets
There’s nowhere to be so we sleep
And we steep and you press into me

And I brood and curse
My selfish words
Because a man in love is desperate to be good
