We drank a lot of wine last night
You told me how that roach motel has been
Its hard to keep your head straight when you've got 'em
climbing up the walls and sleeping in our bed
I need a little more time, sparrow
Do you see how close we are right now?
Its just around the bend, maybe in our heads
we're climbing up this mountain that never ever ever ends

I hear you shouting at my ghost
I hear you calling from the coast of Carolina
to come home and never leave you all alone

No need to settle down right now
if victory's a crime I don't wanna play to win
I'd rather just carry on living like the underdog
dreaming at the bottom of my little hill
I need you in my life, dear sparrow
you float away so far time and time again
but it happens now, I realize finally just who I am
and what I must do to win you back, again
