lyrics

I remember sleeping
I couldn't hear you counting on me
Could I take just one more breath?
Could you give me just one more test of my manliness?
She said, "I'm not so sure I can."

Well, it really felt to me like
An ordinary kinda you-and-me night
And to this day I might feel the same
It was just the two of us
Was it Killarney or Algonquin Park?
It sure as hell wasn't Downtown

We'd always had our problems
And all the times that we hit rock bottom
There are some things we can't understand

But there was nothing preparing me
For the brief and understandable rarity
That would turn our peace right upside down

And now all that's left is the sound of trees
And now all we have is complacency
I focus my energy on different things
Understanding passivity

Was there something that bothered me
About the unremarkable property
There's a couple of maples, but mostly evergreens
But getting back to the task at hand
You're standing there in your faded tan
Telling me again for the thousandth time

And now all that's left is the sound of trees
And now all we have is complacency
I focus my energy on different things
Understanding passivity
