Misunderstood

Wasn’t it you spoke of freedom
And it’s so true it’s just a lie
And ain’t it strange how love can give you
Only as much as you give away

I still can picture you and how your spirit flew
All around this lazy room
And you’d call happiness a shade of blue
Some things last forever even if we don’t want them to

I still love you, I try hard not to
Think about you more than I should
Everything we’ve been through still feels so new
But what I never said you misunderstood

We painted colours against the sky
You said remember, I didn’t know why
And when the night turned a burning scarlett
You said I love you, I made you cry

I knew we couldn’t then come from behind again
Hey what was I supposed to do
We took some chances, we made some noise
Now you’re back home in Little Rock
And I’m back with the boys

I still love you, I try hard not to
Think about you more than I should
Everything we’ve been through still feels so new
But what I never said you misunderstood

I still can picture you and how your spirit flew
All around this lazy room
And you’d call happiness a shade of blue
Some things last forever even if we don’t want them to

I still love you, I try hard not to
Think about you more than I should
Everything we’ve been through still feels so new
But what I never said you misunderstood
