lyrics

Wonder what it’s like to be a bright light
No edge of fists and guns
Hope for everyone
I’ve tried to play it off, to be an open book
No busy lines or walls
No sighs or dirty looks

To be one of the good ones
Kind and self-assured
To hold myself together
Unravel afterward
And struggle to return

Wonder what it’s like to love someone right
No suitcase on the floor
Both feet in the door
I had it once before, I tried my very best
I held the flowers tightly
Trembled in my dress

And I played a good woman
I said the little words
I held myself together
Unraveled afterward
Never have I learned

Wonder what it’s like to sleep through the night
No worries in my head
No phantoms in my bed
I had it once before I made these little lives
Who wake me in the nighttime
Whose cries cut like a knife

But I play a good mother
I cradle and secure
I hold myself together
Unravel afterward

I play one of the good ones
Kind and self-assured
I hold myself together
Unravel afterward
And never quite return
