Songs From The Inside, Volume One: I Call Again

-->
A song about God, a woman, compulsions or perhaps my anima

i call again
 


i try to get close, you push me away
i can't say i blame you but i want you to stay
that's all there is to it


i wander around, living day by day
with unanswered questions and endless delays
why can't we get through it?


i call up to see you, you always say yes
but when's the next time its anybody's guess
how much longer can i do it?


yet, 
i call again, i always call again
i do
i call again, i always call again
even though we both know
its the wrong thing
to do


we go to the mall, i wash your clothes
when you have a cold i blow your nose
its a crying shame


you spend your life, searching for the perfect match
and here i sit waiting for your scraps
its a sad sad game


the truth of it all, is that you can't see
no matter what i do this is me, this is me
it remains the same


yet,
i call again, i always call again
i do
i call again, i always call again
even though we both know
its the wrong thing
to do

 
i call again, i always call again
i do
i call again, i always call again
even though we both know
its the wrong thing
to do
