-------------------------------------------------------
verse 1:
I spent my head in the candy store buyin' hopes based on hints
Which probably weren't right
Someone dimmed the light,
And I lost my sense of truth

verse 2:
So take my pennies on the counter glass and spend 'em right for me
You got vision in the night
You're level headed in a fight
You play Boaz to my Ruth

Chorus:
Oh, and maybe it's just me
Lord, knows I been wrong before
But I feel like something's got to go
Cause it just can't stay this way anymore

verse 3:
I been pourin' out the oil while the engine's on, forgetting that it's hot
I been cuttin' my hand
on the rocks of the land
I been tryin' this without a plow

verse 4:
And I feel like a jar with the water gone. I'm all pasty and dry inside
You got to fill me up
We gotta meet and sup
so you can tell me how

(Chorus 2x)

[Interlude]

bridge 1:
Misplaced passion
How many times will I deny my right to choose?
Misplaced passion
I often choose the jail and request to be abused

bridge 2:
Misplaced Passion
They say a hope deferred can make a heart grow sick
Misplaced passion
They say a sickly heart can play the cruellest trick

bridge 3:
Misplaced passion
Like a pure man's hand inside murderer's glove
Misplaced passion
Can you help me out?
Can you teach me how to love?

outro:
Can you teach me how to love?... (repeat)
