answer man lyrics – hootie & the blowfish

you must retreat now
i just can’t talk anymore
your words make me empty inside
there’s nothin’ left of you

time seems to change
the thoughts i have for you
now i’m so alive but you seem to be
drownin’ every minute

but that’s life
i say it’s alright

i can’t be your answer and
i don’t want to follow you
into your cloud

and i
i am tired of being the one
to live and learn from your mistakes
i’m just so sick of my mind

it sees us like a light
shinin’ bright
in the middle
oh, can’t you see us smiling now?

and i say that’s life
you say it’s alright

i can’t be your answer and
i don’t want to follow you
into your cloud

i can’t stand out and say
i can’t be your answer and
i don’t want to follow you
into your cloud

please open your eyes
see where you sleep tonight
i hope you never come at home
but your bound to live bound to die in it

and you say that’s life
i say, i’ll still be here

i can’t be your answer and
(i can’t be)
i don’t want to follow you
into your cloud
your clouds

and i can’t be your answer
(i can’t be your answer)
i can’t follow you down
(i can’t follow you)
into your cloud
