I got a whole lotta good things going
a list of people that I know I can be
I got you saying that I don't want to see you
why don't you show me what you want me to see?

I got an anger that I can't control
with no respect for time or place
I got you saying that you need me to hold on
and that it ain't really me behind my face

I got people that I ain't even seen before
telling everyone that they knew me when
I got you doing things and apologizing
when you know good and well you're gonna do them again

I got a sister bought a house in the suburbs
it's but a five minute drive from her mother
I got you heating water for tea before bed
me, I shouldn't but I'm having another

I got money that ain't come in yet
it ain't half what it is I owe
I got you spending all of your time on me
until the time comes that you gotta go

I got a close-knit group of guys back out west
you know that some have done better than others
I got you asking me what it is that holds us together
I said the blanket takes the shape that it covers

I got to get it all into the city
but first I got to get it on the trains
I got you trying to stop what's coming
while me I wait here for what remains

I got a place out near Coney Island
they're gonna build it all up from the ground
I got you out trying to park your car
there ain't a single spot to be found

I got a shyness when it comes to women
it makes me feel like less of a man
I got you hearing that you can do better than me
and you tell me that so you probably can

I got a fear that I'm gonna die young
and that I'll only have myself to blame
I got you looking nothing but older
and there's gonna come a day when we're all gonna look the same

I got an old mate I used to room with
he calls me up when he's drunk or in love
I got you holding court in the middle of the night
and push is moving over to shove

I got a new job don't take taxes
you know the coffee goes cold in a minute
I got you with all them things that you need to know
you can't reason through love when you're in it

I got a shelf full of books that I've mostly read
you know that books can be heavy to move
I got you still thinking that the ship is sinking
and that faith is having nothing to prove

I got a wisdom didn't come with age
all things we must learn to weather
I got you taking off all of your clothes
there ain't no one fire gonna burn forever

I got a world that I've got to return to
it disappeared somewhere along the line
I got you to remember my face my love
if asked you can say it was mine

 — Can't Reason Through Love
