All day starin’ at the ceilin’ makin’ Friends with shadows on my wall All night hearing voices tellin’ me That I should get some sleep Because tomorrow might be good for somethin’ Hold on, feelin’ like I’m headed for a breakdown And I don’t know why But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell I know, right now you can’t tell But stay a while and maybe then you’ll see A different side of me I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired I know, right now you don’t care But soon enough you’re gonna think of me And how I used to be, me I’m talkin’ to myself in public, dodging glances on the train And I know, I know they’ve all been talkin’ about me I can hear them whisper, and it makes me think There must be somethin’ wrong with me Out of all the hours thinkin’, somehow I’ve lost my mind
So we’ve put an end to it this time.
I’m no longer yours and you’re no longer mine.
You said this hill looks far too steep
If I’m not even sure it’s me you wanna keep.
And it’s been ten days without you in my reach,
And the only time I’ve touched you is in my sleep.
But time has changed nothing at all –
You’re still the only one that feels like home.
I’ve tried cutting the ropes and
I let you go but you’re still the only one
That feels like home. ~ Missy Higgins – Ten Days
