Draw Me Out

i could stay right here forever

plant my feet in this impossible love

and let the roots take hold

the longing tree would grow around me

i could live inside a hundred years

and never feel the cold

oh yes and all my friends would try to draw me out

oh yes and i would say i'm happy where i am

oh 'cause the not having you 

would be the thing i'd have

i'd try to tell them all i've chosen

that i am not a victim here in this solitude

i take responsibility

but there are times i stop believing

and sometimes on a clear day even i can see

it's limited for me

and i am afraid of real nothingness it's true

oh for all my talk i filled the void with lack of you

oh if i don't have my house of sadness you are gone

i'll miss the grieving

i will miss the missing

but now i know i know that it's not love

i could stay right here forever

plant my feet in this impossible love

and let the roots take hold
