Call and Answer

Album: Stunt (1999)
Charted: 52
  • I think it's getting to the point
    Where I can be myself again
    I think it's getting to the point
    Where we have almost made amends
    I think it's the getting to the point
    That is the hardest part

    And if you call, I will answer
    And if you fall, I'll pick you up
    And if you court this disaster
    I'll point you home
    I'll point you home

    You think I only think about you
    When we're both in the same room
    You think I'm only here to witness
    The remains of love exhumed
    You think we're here to play
    A game of who loves more than whom

    And if you call, I will answer
    And if you fall, I'll pick you up
    And if you court this disaster

    You think it's only fair to do what's best for
    You and you alone
    You think it's only fair to do the same to me
    When you're not home
    I think it's time to make this something that is
    More than only fair

    So if you call, I will answer
    And if you fall, I'll pick you up
    And if you court this disaster
    I'll point you home

    But I'm warning you, don't ever do
    Those crazy, messed-up things that you do
    If you ever do
    I promise you I'll be the first to crucify you
    Now it's time to prove that you've come back here to rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild
    Rebuild, oh

    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh, oh oh oh

  • Hadley from Auburn, MeI think this song is a heartbreaker...obviously, the woman has screwed him over, and he is willing to take her back to work it out. Of course, there is the caveat that if she does crazy stuff again, he will crucify her.
