lyrics

SHE WAS SOMETHING LESS THAN PERFECT
A LITTLE UNREFINED
AND BEFORE HE EVEN NOTICED HER
SHE HANDED HIM A DRINK AND SAID “I KNOW YOUR KIND”
“YOU’RE ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES,
PROBABLY ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY,
BUT YOU’RE NOT ASKING FOR A BREAK FROM ME
OR MAKING UP EXCUSES FOR THE WAY YOU’RE MADE

HE TRIED TO WARN HER, DON’T GET TO CLOSE
I’VE GOT A HISTORY OF HURTING ALL THE ONES I LOVE THE MOST
AND I’VE GOTTEN MUCH TO COMFORTABLE WITH LEAVING
TIME AFTER TIME
SHE SAID YOUR STORIES DON’T SCARE ME
I’VE HEARD EM ALL BEFORE
YOU’RE NOT THE FIRST WORK IN PROGRESS
TO STUMBLE THROUGH MY DOOR
ALL WE NEED IS A LITTLE TIME
TO SMOOTH OUT THE LINES

WELL THE MOONLIGHT IS FORGIVING
AND THE DETAILS TEND TO BLUR
AND THE SCARS FADE IN THE SHADOWS
AND THE THINGS THAT USED TO MATTER ARE OF NO CONCERN
LATER THAT SAME EVENING,
WHEN HE WALKED HER HOME FROM WORK
HE SAW SOMEONE DIFFERENT,
LOOKING BACK AT HIM WHEN HE LOOKED AT HER

HE TRIED TO WARN HER, DON’T GET TO CLOSE
I’VE GOT A HISTORY OF HURTING ALL THE ONES I LOVE THE MOST
AND I’VE GOTTEN MUCH TO COMFORTABLE WITH LEAVING
TIME AFTER TIME
SHE SAID YOUR STORIES DON’T SCARE ME
I’VE HEARD EM ALL BEFORE
YOU’RE NOT THE FIRST WORK IN PROGRESS
TO STUMBLE THROUGH MY DOOR
ALL WE NEED IS A LITTLE TIME
TO SMOOTH OUT THE LINES

SMOOTH OUT THE LINES-
ALL WE NEED IS A LITTLE TIME
TO SMOOTH OUT THE LINES

YEAH WE’VE ALL GOT IMPERFECTIONS
WE’D LIKE TO ERASE
BUT LOVE CAN OVERLOOK THOSE THINGS
AND HAPPEN IN THE MOST UNLIKELY TIME AND PLACE
