lyrics

My arms and my legs are intact and they're the only things that remain that way
But my heart and the pegs are in fact whole, and I'll admit I'm not surprised
They're the ones that I used to fill the holes that you awled out in my sleep
And yet occasionally I'm not surprised when they pry out and they seep

Something kept you up that night, but I know it wasn't me
Because that night was the first in a long time when I finally slept soundly
I could deny it until the end, but I knew that was what it would be
But I still think I would do it again, discounting the contingency

And I'm not feeling these things that I feel that I should
So I'll just clear these doubts inside your head
But I don't know what's inside of mine
'Cause last time I opened up, I picked it off the ground

And I'm not feeling these things that I feel that I should
So I'll just clear these doubts inside my head
But I don't know what's inside of yours
'Cause last time I tore it off, I could not reattach

So now I'm an amputee, or so it seems
Even though I still have my extremities

You're the arms of my heart and the legs of my mind
And I can't cut them off even though I don't try

And I still miss you, you see, but do you me
'Cause I still have quite a bit for these past three years
