Lyrics

The first time you cry and no one’s home. You wipe your eyes and turn to stone.
You turn down lights and turn off phones.
You turn the bloody page.
I’ve wept til it don’t hurt a bit.
I think I've got the hang of it.
I’m ready as I’ve ever been
If no one comes my way

I’d fill a book cover to cover
With how much I don’t need a lover.
If you look, you will discover I’m happy being free.
I paid my dues over and over.
I’m all clear for pushing clovers.
Before I do, would you come over
And be nobody to me?
Be nobody to me.

The first time you fall and no ones’ there. You punch the wall and no one cares,
The stand up tall and earn the very
Legs you stand upon.

I’ve broken every part of me.
My holy soul’s been smithereens.
I’m ready as I’ll ever be
If no one comes along.

I’d fill a book cover to cover
With how much I don’t need a lover.
If you look, you will discover I’m happy being free.
I paid my dues over and over.
I’m all clear for pushing clovers.
Before I do, would you come over
And be nobody to me?
Be nobody to me.

The last time that I lost it all,
I made a vow to never call
My knees are so worn out from crawling, They are finally numb.

The moon looks up as if to say,
"I think you’ve proven you're ok."
Maybe this will be the day
You let somebody come.

I’d fill a book cover to cover
With how much I don’t need a lover.
If you look, you will discover I’m happy being free.
I paid my dues over and over.
I’m all clear for pushing clovers.
Before I do, would you come over
And be nobody to me,
Be nobody to me.
