lyrics

four walls, a roof, and plenty of
attention and food to fill me up
all my life should have been enough
to show me how to love you.

i'm sorry I don't always know
just how to let the small things go
or what to say when it matters most.
you make it look so easy.

if you're a river than I must be a spout.
where you deliver, I barely spit it out you know that
no one wants a taste unless it's flowing cool and clean.
you're what love is made of.
my imitation's cheap.

honest I don't remember when
i had a thought pass through my head
not about me in the end
and I don't know how to curb it.

can't help but wonder why I don't
ever feel ice in your tone
or have to hear I told you so's
heaven knows I've earned it.

if you're a river than I must be a spout.
where you deliver, I barely spit it out you know that
no one wants a taste unless it's flowing cool and clean.
you're what love is made of.
my imitation's cheap.

i don't wanna lose you.
i know you're not just a game I'm playing.
when'll I ever understand?
the more I know it
the less I wanna show it:
love means folding with a winning hand.
