lyrics

wringing my hands gently
my body ached to say you hurt me in some way i can't name
and isn't it always the case?
my mouth's afraid to frame those old cliches
you'd only scoff at anyway
why'd i have to turn my love into a game we all get to play?
but the rules, you claim, were vague

there will always be someone consoling me on ninth floor balconies

and maybe i'm too fragile
my disposition isn't fit to house the sort of tenderness you grant me with
but your fingers wrapped around my waist
provide a different take on what love is
but still i'm not convinced

and there will always be someone consoling me on ninth floor balconies

and we're too set on believing
that missing forgives leaving

there will always be someone consoling me on ninth floor balconies

there will always be
somewhere, somebody to blame
for the throb in my throat
or the slap to my name
