I’m Only Sayin’

Lyrics:

May 24, 2006 – Oakland

Color
Your cheeks are burnt beneath the sun.
Another
Line you use to say you’ve gotta run.

I’m only sayin’
You should be stayin’.
I’m only sayin’
Don’t be afraid to be right here.

It’s summer
It’s been the longest winter yet.
And I cannot afford
Another summer of regret.

I’m tired
I’m mired in my mind.
And you’re wired you’re inspired.
Inspired now.

Yeah, I’m tired
Of every lonely day.
And I don’t see no use
In goin’ our separate ways.

I’m sayin’
You should be stayin’.
I’m only sayin’
Don’t be afraid to be right here.

Work just works to keep us alone and weak
Trading art or meaning for some task.
But we’ve got this porch and a quiet day
And there’s nothing more I’d ask.

We’re perfect; we’re far from being burned.
We’re perfect, hey
As far as I’m concerned.

I’m only sayin’
You should be stayin’.
I’m sayin’
Don’t be afraid to be right here.
