Telling Time lyrics

The Avett Brothers

can you not see what you've done?
you gave your heart away like that
i didn't want to fall in love with anyone
but you did
i can still hear the song
the melody behind the kiss you gave me
you were wrong
i was right, so i walked away
and left you there, alone
i got so tired of talking on the telephone
how many times would i hear the words "good-bye"

i made mistakes and one was telling you
that i'd be there when telling time had come
i should've said i didn't care
oh, the time i would have saved
if i had been less willing to accomodate
you'd have been a little less likely to cry

you go back to the high life
and i'll go back to the low
i should have known
but now i know
there'll be no words from you
describing how it felt to go through what i put you through
it all makes perfect sense
the way you cut the rope
that kept you dangling from such pitiful amounts of hope
i would've cut it too
