lyrics

while you were sleeping late
the neighbors will debate
who was in your driveway this morning
but here comes the sunrise
and i know how to take a cue
i know when i've had my warning

but i back out in neutral
i do not make a sound
i've got my cloak of invisibility
wrapped tightly around
and i tell myself that

everything will be okay from now on
if i just close my eyes and believe it
the unraveling of love is sometimes hard
but there is only so long you can grieve it.

and it's not worth admission
to get into this town
and by admission i mean confession
and there's no getting around

that i'm still pulling up the sidewalk
to find the lost storyline
to find the clues to lead me back
to what i left behind

but the breadcrumbs are all paved over
and the forest has been cut down
so i've got my cloak of invisibility
wrapped tightly around
and i tell myself that

everything will be okay from now on
if i just close my eyes and believe it
the unraveling of love is sometimes hard
but there is only so long you can grieve it.

mothers walk their daughters to school
little pig-tailed girls in winter coats
somehow that's the kind of thing
that i still miss the most
but i tell myself that

everything will be okay from now on
if i just close my eyes and believe it
the unraveling of love is sometimes hard
but there is only so long you can grieve it.
