Let the words come down through me and get me out of the way
cause this is the purest thing that i ever hope to say
with all the clutter of my clever thinking and
jokes to be made
the noise has me sinking yeah i'm sinking
And though I may have been gifted with heightened awareness
of moods as they change she couldn't care less
and I

I only wanted to tell her goodbye
I only wanted to tell her goodbye

I can see myself saying the things that I think I should be
like my favorite resentment it all unfolds before me
I am holding your hand as you cry It is what's now showing in my mind
as i hover above and float near the ceiling
You hold my cold hand you say I'm unfeeling

I only wanted to tell her goodbye
I didn't want to be unkind

Now I'm screaming inside but i think that i'm protecting
you from the truth that you're already suspecting
So i compose a credible ending
with logic and blocking but I am pretending
And thanks to my talents you draw the conclusion
that it's best for us both but it is i who is losing you...

i'm unfolding ... i'm unfolding...

Close up the curtains and turn out the lights
I have poorly scripted most of my life
It's my last run on broadway this is my final call
this act runs forever and i'm winging it all
I want to walk around corners and see midgets on stilts
I want scary music to precede my guilt
I want beginnings that end I want stars that die
I want mysteries that never tell why...

i'm unfolding ... i'm unfolding..
