lyrics

I'm not one of those people
Who saunters through life
Cloaked in confidence
I walk a fine, fine wire
I'm fragile, not frail
I'm a teller of tales.
I started with 88 keys
And ended up with six strings
Either way, these two hands of mine
Have always spoken for me
I write myself into the chords
I drag my heart up and down the fret board.

This small world is getting smaller
As I search for songs in the squalor
As glasses of water go, baby, you're always getting taller.

I've never been prone to gamble
I love a sure thing
I've never been known to ramble
But I'm developing a hankering
I'm fragile, not frail
I wanna travel and tell my tales
There's a comfort in strangers
That I find hard to explain
I think what excites me
Is the blank slate of my name
You only know what you learn
For as long as the flame burns

This small world is getting smaller
As I search for songs in the squalor
As glasses of water go, baby, you're always getting taller.
