lyrics

I was only messing 'round, didn't mean to change your mind
but you seemed lonely, yeah, you seemed lonely
didn't seem like a bad idea at the time
we were traveling in the same direction
caught out on the interstate in a blinding rain, yeah
you shared your story, all your battered glory

I never noticed while I was staring out at the road

you were staring right back at me

why do you gotta go with a stained-glass heart
why do you wanna know where the fault lines start
and I'm just hanging around
to see the damn thing run aground

All those miles and years gone missing in the flood

can’t say I remember anything

I’m sure the good times tucked away must be
worth a little more than nothing

maybe you were always just a drama queen
and I was the king of making things seem so damn small
maybe I had no idea how much I'd miss you, after all

why do you gotta go with a stained-glass heart
why do you wanna know where the fault lines start
and I'm just hanging around
to see the damn thing run aground

why do you take it so hard?
you play the sympathy card

when you feel the rain come down

I wish I felt like you do
it's just a turn of the screw
but time makes a fool of me again

why do you gotta go with a stained-glass heart
why do you wanna know where the fault lines start
and I'm just hanging around
to see the damn thing run aground

I was only messing around, didn’t mean 2 change yr mind …
