I Taught You to Linger

from by Leitbur

lyrics

linger, nearer, mirror, needed
linger, nearer, mirror, make you whole

my vagrant heart
it’s starting to vanish
same old mirage
been holding me captive
all my life
i wanted to blow out
my old cycle:
walking in place, on my own
furrows leaving no definite trace

i taught you to linger
by keeping you nearer
you looked in the mirror
and found what you needed
(clues to make me whole)
i taught you to linger
(you taught me to linger)
i taught you to linger
(you taught me to linger)
you found the clues
to make you whole

your accepting eyes
always pulling me closer
rose-colored life
you’re winning me over
but i still deny
that my war
comes from inside
i navigate my unknown
by the signs of life on your face

in my perfect lie
i could survive
but I won’t deny you
(won’t deny you)
i’m in the fight

(chorus)
