Lyrics

I Wish I Could Stop Writing Songs About You

i’m sitting down now putting pen to paper just trying to think of something
else to say
but instead of words come pictures like stills from a movie
or reruns of an episode I’m trying to erase
so I jot it down kind of sketch it out and it looks like the present I once
knew

wonder where my days have gone as it’s turning towards the dawn
i know it’s time to move along but it’s dark
after all is said and done I still end where I’ve begun
yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you

why do I bother there’s other fodder more relevant and pressing still to say
there’s war and inaction and disaffection and ignorance and hatred
and injustice to name away
see I’ve tried it all tried to switch my mind’s track but it seems that all I got
is only one

wonder where my days have gone as it’s turning towards the dawn
i know it’s time to move along but it’s hard
after all is said and done I still end where I’ve begun
yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you

i better sew my mouth shut better hold my head up
better go ahead and lock my heart away
but I just can’t keep it down yeah it keeps breaking out
and I’ve got no other choice but to let the gates give way
so I’ll just give in even though it kills me
in the meantime I’ve got page after page after page after page……

they say take it easy and spur me on
i know it’s time to move along but I just can’t see
yeah I know that there will be a melody suited more for me
but for now I just can’t stop writing songs about you
yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you
yeah I’ll probably never stop writing songs about you
