lyrics

male:
how old, how old, will I live, then die alone
how old, how old, when they finally carve my stone
I'll be holding you tonight but my soul's out on the road
how old, how old, will I live, then die alone

female:
how long, how long, will you keep singing this song
how long, how long, 'til you see that I'm the one
I've been working in the field, and you're my burning sun
so how long, how long, will you keep singing this song

chorus:
Take me down, I was selfish when you were around
string me up by my feet, oh oh oh oh oh
Talk me down, I'm standing too high above ground
You're the only friend I see

male:
I've never known someone that I could call my own
I'm just someone that everyone I've known's outgrown
the thread has all come apart from every quilt I've sewn
I've never known someone that I could call my own

female:
but don't you see, the love I give to you is free
there are no strings, no wires no one's pulling me
I'll give you all I have, you're all I live and breathe
you gotta love yourself, before you can love me

chorus
