when she'll float

do you ever really do anything for anybody else

do you ever give and not even not really stand to gain

a little something for your trouble

for the energy you spend

a little something you require in return

a little sunshine savings for a rainy day

a little favor you call in when you're in need

or just to know they think you're there

reliable and good

and that you'd do it all for nothing

i know you think you should

do you ever really stop and see just how you really feel

do you ever take it in and let it make you who you are

or are you on the road to nowhere

are you scared of digging in

on the run as if there's anywhere to go

another shiny new distraction up a ways

or someone elses' song repeating in your head

a stone may skip on water but eventually she'll sink

and when she gets down to the bottom

that's when she'll float i think

staying out of trouble makes the trouble grow

trip the light fantastic but come home sometimes

give them what you've got then let them

let you fall apart

the time has come for seasoning your heart

oh look a shiny new distraction up a ways

and someone else's song repeating in your head

a stone may skip on water but eventually she'll sink

yeah a stone may skip on water but eventually she'll sink

yeah a stone may skip on water but eventually she'll sink

and when she gets down to the bottom

that's when she'll float i think
