“Hear From Me” Lyrics

This is one of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written.  I just think the cadence is tight and the metaphors and word play are somewhere in the neighborhood of my best.  See what you think:

I don’t mean to bring you down, so I can’t really bring you up

Just the very mention of your name forms a fuzzy kind of pain that fills every corner of my heart up.

It wasn’t mean of you…to hold me like you meant to

But it was something I got used to.  Now it’s sad to sleep without you.

So you won’t hear from me…for a little while.

You won’t hear from me…I gotta find my own way to smile.

I never meant to tie you down.  I just meant to tie you up.

Burn your body with my stare, scratch your back and pull your hair and tear every corner of your room up.

And it was good with you.  Your bed was easy to fall in to.  But it kind of made me want to fall in love too.

That seems like a lot to ask of you.

So you won’t hear from me…for a little while.

You won’t hear from me…I need to find my own way to smile.

I got a lot of books to read.  I’ll develop a philosophy.  I got a lot of plans to make.

They tell me at this point I should avoid many more mistakes.

They tell me I always fall for the kind that just ride the brakes.

Maybe that’s exactly what it takes

So you won’t hear from me for a little while.  No, you won’t hear from me…for a little while.

You are dear to me…you’re a kiss gone wild.

Won’t you wait for me til I find my own way to smile.
