about

This song is about perspective, and trying to see things from a view that is not your own.

lyrics

Oh darling can you see me now?
I'm standing up and pressing on.
We danced around and I fell down.
Oh darling can you see me now?

Oh mother can you hear me now?
You're saying words that you don't mean.
We danced around and words rained down.
Oh mother can you hear me now?

Oh sister can you feel it now?
I think you know what I might mean.
They say the grass is always greener.
Oh sister can you feel it now?

Oh_____
You had your hands tied behind your back and now they're stuck.

Oh darling I'm so sorry now,
we backed and forthed for far too long.
Up and down you span me round and round and round and round.
Oh darling I'm so sorry now.

Oh mother you knew all along.
You were right and never wrong.
You held me tight while I cried all through that long cold night.
Oh mother you knew all along.

Oh sister I can't help it now.
He broke my heart, and then he moved on.
He's gone away and he's not coming back, it's well and truly done.
Oh sister I can't help it now.

Oh_____
You had your fingers crossed when you promised not to break me. To break me, you broke me.

Oh sweetheart, I can't love you now.
I've washed my hands of all you done.
We made a start, and I played my part.
Oh sweetheart, I can't love you now.'
