Sense Field — A Letter To Elise lyrics

Oh, Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
Just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same, the way we act out

Every wait is smile, forget
And make believe we never need it anymore than this
Anymore than this

Oh, Elise, it doesn't matter what you do
No, I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire the way they should

The way their blue could pull me in
If they only would, if they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else that hides away

For me and you, they're worlds apart
With taking looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands could make
Why just take as much as you can throw

No, I throw it all away
Oh, I throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky, like throwing it all down

Yesterday I couldn't stand my eyes in front of you
And the face I saw looked like the way I want it to
But I just can't hold my tears away the way you do
Elise believe I never wanted to

I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about
But I let the dream go, and the promises broke
And the make believe ran out

So Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
Just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same the way we act out

Every wait is smile, forget
And make believe, we never need it anymore than this
Anymore than this

Every time I tried to pick you up like falling sand
I start as I pick it up, it runs away through my clutching hands
There's nothing else I can really do, there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do at all
