about

This one is about unrequited love and was inspired by an Anais Mitchell song called "Now You Know".

lyrics

It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done but the work piled up
as it tends to do when I talk to you
When I talk to you with your furrowed brows
As they tend to be when you talk to me
When you talk to me oh my knees go weak
As they tend to do

I think you'd be doin' yourself a favor
By stayin' in my arms tonight
Maybe we could watch the sunrise over the hill

It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done but I love my words
I'll never find em now
They're strangers in a crowd
And if I knew just who they were maybe I could pick em out
But what good would it do
I'd lose em just as soon
I never know what I should say when you walk into the room
So how about a tune?

I think you'd be doin' yourself a favor
Stayin' in my arms tonight
Maybe we could watch the sunrise over the hill

I don't read minds tell me if you think I'm alright
Tell me if you think I'm alright
And if I can't have you then I don't think I want anyone
I don't think I want anyone
So it rises to my eyes and mine alone
