lyrics

You tried to make me understand
But there's really no need to explain
Sometimes it seems it's all in vain
I guess

You tried to see 'round the corner
Now you've seen what you had feared
There's nothing there that isn't here
I guess

Then you drifted away
There was nothing to say

Between the cracks of right and wrong
The sweetest flower never blooms
Lies crumbled in familiar rooms
Stillborn

Between the coming and the gone
There's still a trace that lingers on
The cracking of another dawn
You're dancing
On and on

Then you drifted away
There was nothing to say
When you drift away

You tried to make me understand
But there's really no need to explain
Sometimes it seems it's all in vain
I guess

You tried to see 'round the corner
Now you've seen what you had feared
There's nothing there that isn't here
I guess

Then you drifted away
There was nothing to say
When you go to Mexico
