lyrics

i had a heart full of good intent
a sweet little house, paid a decent rent
but i shouted and shouted
and no one heard.

i tried to carve out my own little place
i followed the rules til i was blue in the face
but someone else
always had the last word.

and if a tree falls and no one hears
well it's like that with all of these years
no one knows what happened
so maybe nothing really happened...

and austin, i made a mess out of this
and i'm going home.
i only saw the dark of your sunny side,
it left me feeling alone.
and you won't even notice
cause a lot of people come and go.
you only hear what you want to hear.
you only know who you wanna know.

well i guess i tried to tame you,
but you know that you can't blame me for that
cause i know i'm not the first
to make that mistake.

and you never made me a promise
but you seemed so full of promises
was i fool to think
there's one in there for me?

and if a tree falls and no one hears
well it's like that with all of these years
no one knows what happened
so maybe nothing really happened...

and austin, i made a mess out of this
and i'm going home.
i only saw the dark of your sunny side,
it left me feeling alone.
and you won't even notice
cause a lot of people come and go.
you only hear what you want to hear.
you only know who you wanna know.
