Half Wrong

I was so hungover from our time together

that when I finally came to, I found I'd married a girl just 'cause she looked like you

Now I'm much more sober, and I've sworn off the word 'forever'

and even though you're not here I won't say it's clear it was completely untrue

'Cause I can still see your face if I want when I close my eyes

I can feel the brush of your hand in these lies


(chorus)

I was half wrong, only half wrong

A part of you's still with me even after twenty years have gone

Only half wrong, it's why I'm on carrying on

Think I could give up the fight if I weren't partially right that I could just move on

But I was only half wrong


In the blind hereafter, I hear that echoing laughter

In the desert inside where I go to hide when I can't be alone

And even though I'm older I guess that I still need looking after

I've got the heart of a child, unguarded and wild, inside of this stone

I wish I could remember what it felt like to be me

How I could have been so fearless and so free


(chorus)

I was half wrong, only half wrong

Even through this confusion there's a part of me still sure and strong

Only half wrong, it's why I'm on carrying on

Think I could give up the fight if I weren't partially right that I could just move on

But I was only half wrong


Now a thrall to reason, and suspicious of all emotion

Counting the cost of the pieces I lost in my armored cocoon

But in this middle season I'm still pulled like the swaying ocean

Trying to hold back the tide of the torrent inside from the unyielding moon

Feels to me like a day's coming when there's nowhere left to hide

When the water tears the chamber open wide


(chorus)

I was half wrong, only half wrong

All the stones in this wall won't keep out the coming dawn

Only half wrong, It's why I have to move on

Now can I give up the fight, and let in the light before the chance is gone?

I was only half wrong
