Erin Mckeown - 23 November lyrics

Take your eyes off my hands and look at me
It's not the music you came here to see.
I am laying myself out and i am crossing some line
But just where its drawn is up to you to define.

I have chosen to be here and give you myself
But in truth its not like i could have chosen much else.
So when i dare you to look deep deep deep into my eyes
When you can't, you look away i have to say i am not surprised.

I know you haven't been listening, you've no clue the wars i've fought
And you were deciding when to hear me when i reached out to strum your thought.
Yes, i'll keep your attention, after all, it's been bought
But don't think you know what makes me happy when i don't even know why i am not

Do you think it's so easy to stand here and sing for you?
Well, it's not but sometimes i forget who it is i have fooled
And sometimes i forget that you don't know me at all.
It's then i tell you too much, it's then i let you see me crawl.

Take your eyes off my hands and look at me
It's not the music you came here to see.
I am warning you that sometimes i often lie.
You think you hear my truth but it's only my best try.
