I try to know what's the matter
You try and tell me what it is
You think the answers lie with time and patience
Experience and hope
But I know that's not true.

You have to give so much more than that
The answer isn't short and you can't find it staring down a road
That doesn't lead anywhere but away from here
You won't find an answer.

You're more naïve than I wanna tell you
You try to understand when you're drunk and swaying
That's when you find your answers
But I know it's not the end
When you plan that trip away

Sometimes people tell you that the world won't come crashing down
But I know that's not true and I hope you can understand
The way it feels when everything falls away.
