  1. Control

From the album Honey & Knives

Lyrics

I have tried to grip the air
but some sunshine always leaks
and I was certain I could keep you here
with those perfect words I was gonna speak

But that’s a control that I’ll never have
Everyone tells me just let it be
but what if I love you uncontrollably?

I have pounded on the rain
as if that might make it cease
though I’ve reasoned with the pain
it refuses to release

That’s a control that I’ll never have
I know I should listen and let it be
but it feels like the love’s controlling me

I let you go because I had to
Restlessly reaching for some hold
but you were never mine to control

There’s a somethin’ that I hate
about all the things I need
I shouldn’t want to be with anybody
who doesn’t want to be with me

That’s a control that I’ll never have
Everyone tells me just let it be
but it feels like the love’s controlling me
