The Careful Ones - Without You

When the numbers that I'm holding
Don't quite match the drawing
You reinvent the truth
With your crosswords and your coffee
Only you can solve me in that way you do
Forever I will refuse

To be without you
To be without you

The rocks my river runs through
the only sail I'm rung to
My perfect will to move
I was desperate when you saw me
Aimless and falling
I couldn't bare to lose you
Forever I will refuse

To be without you
To be without you

And the wheels keep on turning then
The shocks and wows have calmed down to a whisper
and you kiss me with that broken laugh
Reminding me it doesn't have to be or feel ordinary

When the numbers that I'm holding
Don't quite match the drawing
You reinvent the truth
With your crosswords and your coffee
Only you can solve me in that way you do
Forever I will refuse
