Songs > Hourglass > Lyrics

It's just my luck
I open my mouth when I shouldn’t speak
And the words that come they never compare to what I should’ve said

So I get stuck and nobody cares, its hot air I’m breathin’
Though I mean well you never could tell me the message I’m meaning

You’re tongue tied like a criminal's mind
It’s weighted down where the truth can’t hide
It slides by through an hourglass frame
Yeah it hurts to look but you don’t complain
Whatever came of your legitimate plans?
When the dust had cleared had you washed your hands

This indecision isn’t quite what it seems
But the fact that you spoke is no surprise to me

We’ll make it along with what we got
We’ll make it along with what we got
We’ll make it along with what we got
‘Cause we got enough

I never said you don’t care
You didn’t know the right way
I might have said I’d been fair
Did you really think I could be?
I always tried to be there
You always knew where to find me
So if I seemed unaware
Could we agree just to disagree?

You’re tongue tied like a criminal's mind
It’s weighted down where the truth can’t hide
It slides by through an hourglass frame
Yeah it hurts to look but you don’t complain
Whatever came of your legitimate plans?
When the dust had cleared had you washed your hands
This indecision isn’t quite what it seems
But the fact that you spoke is no surprise to me

We’ll make it along with what we got
We’ll make it along with what we got
We’ll make it along with what we got
‘Cause we got enough
