answering machine lyrics – matt nathanson

i met a new one and she looks just like you
she gives me everything that you didn’t want to
and maybe i don’t need saving after all
she sticks in my ribs almost better than you did
and maybe i’m tired or maybe she glows

i wonder if you’re still defending
i wonder if you’re still defending

met someone with your eyes and skin
i can convince her of everything
and baby, it’s so delicious you should
come here and see for yourself
“i’m gone”, you said, “if this is all there is:
you’ll never shine alone

and i wonder if you’re still defending
i wonder if you’re still defending

you’ve been so wrong
for so long now

(i can fall alone if all
if i can fall away)

i’ve kissed others lips
and they promised me healing
it’s easy if you try
