The Hit I Take

Oh lover
find another
take cover
move along
go back to the rules again
I’ll be your fool again
write you a song

If you’ve got tension
I’d like to mention
you’ll never find a shot
to inoculate you against
whatever it is
I’ve got

I try to live
close to the gift I give
close to the hit I take
make the most of it
make no mistake of it
so I don’t overtake you
just for the sake of it

Oh lover
find another
take cover
move along
go back to the rules again
I’ll be your fool again
even if it’s wrong
because the edges of my heart are new again
just what do you want me to do again
do I have to prove it to you again
that I want you the way that I do again

And your worry
can’t match my fury
I know you can’t go back
to that you and me place full of
whatever it is
we lack

So I try to live
close to the gift I give
close to the hit I take
make the most of it
so there’s no mistake in it
and I’m not half broken
just with the ache of it

Oh lover
find another
take cover
move along
go back to the rules again
I’ll be your fool again
even if it’s wrong
because the edges of my heart are new again
so what do you want me to do again
do I have to prove it to you again
that I love you the way that I do again
