Lyrics

I wrote a novel about it
Grammatically it's full of holes
My specialty has never been
knowing where them commas go
And I made a promise about it
And you'd think by now I would have learned
That page and pen and good intent don't represent
A corner turned.

I should know better than I do
And I would, if I could, if I had the will
to want to
But I already know this, I already know this well
And yet I remain it, I remain it still

And I'm so frightened of failure
I'm scared to even begin
That irony is not lost on me
I just refuse to let it sink in
And I'm a creature of habit
Caught in comforts hot and cold
Leave me outside when the river's high
and eventually I'll turn to stone.

I should know better than I do
And I would, if I could, if I had the will
ahhh forget about it. Ahhh
But I already know this, I already know this well
And yet I remain it, I remain it still

But I already know this, I already know this well
And yet I remain it, I remain it still
