about

This is an unrequited love song. Unrequited love is mostly stupid. Stupid and educational.

lyrics

I got the wheels -- I got the time --
I got the coffee -- I got the lines
And I practice and I practice and I practice my revisions in the mirror
And I nod ‘til I believe my little story and I gather all my gear
Fact is lately you’re still in my mind,
‘cuz I got these wheels and all this time
And late at night I’m wakeful, so I think of you
But you do not think of me -- you do not think of me --
You do not think on me

I got wheels -- I got the time --
For playin’ hangman on these broken lines
And by now it’s automatic, the acrobatics in the circus in my mind
And it’s cute how I keep turning this leaf over
when it’s just got the two sides
Fact is it’s my very first big break
I’m just a clown, I’m a cliché
And every morning when I wake I reach for you,
but you do not reach for me -- you do not reach for me --
You will not reach for me

Oh, I got the wheels to move along but it takes time
To lose the habit of tryin’ to raise you on the line
Was a time we had to lean upon each other
but now you could not need me less
And I won’t say humiliating, but it’s close, the way it feels as you forget
Fact is, you're already off the hook
And if you were never ever on – my heart can't look
And I shouldn’t, but I wrote another song about you
And I know you do not write for me
You will not write for me
You will not write on me

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
