Enlighten Me

 

in my mind i write you letters all the time 
somehow i never get the pen to paper 
and in my life my words always rhyme 
and it's a shame i dont hate her or blame her 

look at that im 29 
and not much has changed since the last time we danced 
and im good, im good i swear to god im fine 
im just scared to death to take a chance 

i think youre crazier than me 
i think youre crazy as can be 
and it frightens me so enlighten me 

i got your note about the day the girl fell -- 
a five story window i dont know too well 
and i never wrote you back (cant you tell?) 
that in my mind the image just climbs 

i spent too long with the wrong kinds of men 
one went to iraq, came back, but fled again 
and i think of them - i do, now and then 
it only reminds me, that's all behind me 

i think youre crazier than me 
i think youre crazy as can be 
and it frightens me, so enlighten me 

the things in this life we're striving to get 
are the same as those finding us fools of regret 
i remember clearly the day we met 
cause your voice was crystal and your hair was so gold 

the need for new love — it's loyalty to an old 
though i don't believe it's what i'm being told 
remember on the platform we stood in the cold? 
i wonder how we'll stand it, one day when we're old . . . 

will you still be crazy about me? 
will you still be crazy as can be? 
cause it frightens me enlighten me 

now whod ever guess one day we'd cross feet 
the corner where houston and essex street meet 
and whod ever guess youd envision our kid 
in the back of a car drivin over a bridge 

i dont know how much more i'll take of all this 
do we come apart or do we join at the hip? 
or do we both flip a coin; heads or tails — tell me quick — 
heads means let's say tails says walk away! 

i think youre crazy, i think youre crazier than me 
i think youre crazy as can be 
and it frightens me enlighten me 

time passes on and we pick up the pen 
tho we barely write a word before we put it down again 
im asking myself aint the sole intention 
to be riddled with love without any question? 

it's time we give the lunatic business arrest 
you're borderline romantic at worst i guess 
i made a mistake i got it all wrong 
it's me whos insane but for the sake of my song 

i made you crazier than me 
i may be crazy as can be 
and it frightens mes so enlighten me 

i write you letters all the time in my mind 
i write you letters all the time in my mind 
i write you letters all the iime in my mind 
i write you letters . . .
