Lyrics

Pity
Take pity on me
Because IĀ'm not half the man that I should be
Always turning to run
From the people I should not be afraid of
And darlin' you should know
That I have fantasies about being alone
ItĀ's like love is a lesson
That I canĀ't learn
So I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn

[Chorus]
I know you canĀ't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wont swim
Who wont dip his toe in
Just to keep you here with him

IĀ've got this habit I abhor
When we go out IĀ'm always watching the door
As if thereĀ's someone IĀ'm gonna see
Who could out do the things that you do to me

[Chorus]
I know you canĀ't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wonĀ't fly
Who will take to the skies
If he thinks that youĀ're about to say goodbye

Pity, take pity on me
Because IĀ'm not half the man that I should be
And I donĀ't blame you youĀ've had enough
With all these empty promises and countless bluffs

[Chorus]
'Cause I know you canĀ't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who wonĀ't jump
When he falls in love
He just stands with his toes on the edge
And he waits for it to disappear again
