lyrics

Jacob's Ladder

I get you mixed up inside me when I get hit by your arrows
When you unwittingly sing to me in your car
And show me the deepest melodies written in your soul
And even though you don’t know it,
You’ve gently disrobed my heart
And left me there naked
And then you are surprised when you see my tears

How do I explain to you (What a funny game)
That you are father, lover, brother and friend
All tangled up inside me?
A little girl’s string too full of knots
A Jacob’s ladder too complex to unravel

And sometimes I am desperate just to feel you
Some part of me ready to melt
If you will just look into my eyes
If you will just fold me in your embrace
And smile a little of your heart into me
And whisper to me what hurt you
And whisper to me why you love me

And there are times when I’m desperate for your approval
And times I just want you to see me, to hear me
And there are times I want you to just take me now
And times I wish you wouldn’t take me so seriously
And there are times when I feel obliged to listen
And times when I wish that you would speak
And there are times that I flinch at your pain and your cold
And there are times in your rage that I scream with relief.
