Lyrics

Think what you will,
I was never as bad as they said
Ok, maybe I was, but back then I was out of my mind
Now I’m all put together,
each quivering section of spine
And I’m here to adhere like I never could ever before

‘Cause I was afraid
but now I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready
I just don’t think you’re ready
To hear what I’m saying to you

Darlings of distance,
caught splitting
the difference again
If I’d reached out for something other than the something I had
We might not have to do this each summer, each winter, each fall
Oh, just cut me to pieces
Red ribbons
Red ribbons
The end

‘Cause I was afraid
but now I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready
I just don’t think you’re ready
To hear what I’m saying to you
Yeah, I was afraid
but now I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready
I just don’t think you’re ready
To hear what I’m saying to you

I don’t like this anymore
We keep drifting apart
There’s no constant anywhere
Every time we restart
Do you like this?
I can’t tell what’s real or what’s not through the weight of this storm
No, I don’t like this anymore
We’re just floating in space

I was afraid but now I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready
I just don’t think you’re ready
To hear what I’m saying
‘Cause I was afraid but now I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready
I just don’t think you’re ready
To hear what I’m saying to you
I was afraid
But now
I’m ready
I was afraid
But now
I’m ready
