communication lyrics – the cardigans

for 27 years i’ve been trying to believe and confide in
different people i’ve found.
some of them got closer than others
some wouldn’t even bother and then you came around
i didn’t really know what to call you, you didn’t know me at all
but i was happy to explain.
i never really knew how to move you
so i tried to intrude through the little holes in your veins

and i saw you
but that’s not an invitation
that’s all i get
if this is communication
i disconnect
i’ve seen you, i know you
but i don’t know
how to connect, so i disconnect

you always seem to know where to find me and i’m still here behind you
in the corner of your eye.
i’ll never really learn how to love you
but i know that i love you through the hole in the sky.

where i see you
and that’s not an invitation
that’s all i get
if this is communication
i disconnect
i’ve seen you, i know you
but i don’t know
how to connect, so i disconnect

well this is an invitation
it’s not a threat
if you want communication
that’s what you get
i’m talking and talking
but i don’t know
how to connect
and i hold a record for being patient
with your kind of hesitation

oh, i need you, you want me
but i don’t know
how to connect, so i disconnect
i disconnect
