answer lyrics – blue october

if i can’t crawl inside of you i’m laughing with a broken face
i stumble across my self-esteem
but to picture the pleasure is making me want my sp*ce

understand that god wrapped you like a bow
but in my head there’s some shelves that need cleaning
from bas*m*nt to ceiling, control

if what you’re seeing is an open book
that’s great well, i’m an open book
but i’m real shy

now there’s a part of me seeking
and desperately needing to open up
that’s strange ’cause i’m an open book a confused boy

i’m an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people
my heart while in its cage is used to give and not receive a thing
but the only funny thing is that i don’t know how to give myself advice

and i’ve got this post-traumatic thing
i’ve got this tattoo of a ring that lies around my wedding finger
and that’s where i want to state this claim

that i gotta learn to live and dream
before i go and get myself in love, in love
before, before, before i go and get myself in love

there’s zoloft, welbutrin, there’s paxil that’s proven
no side effects
but the rest left unnamed ’cause they worked like a charm on me

but when your savings is drying
you can’t stop from crying, you’ve got to suck it up
you’re not her b*ttercup, you’re not her favorite book

i am an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people
my heart while in its cage is used to give and not receive a thing
but the only funny thing is that i don’t know how to give myself advice

and i’ve got this post-traumatic thing
i’ve got this tattoo of a ring that lies around my wedding finger
and that’s where i want to state this claim

that i gotta learn to live and dream
before i go and get myself in love, in love
before, before, before i go and get myself in love
in love, before, before, before i go and get myself in love
