Building a Hole

Falling into love is like building a hole
Hoping to ensnare who's been piercing your soul
With words, eyes, gestures and maybe a lie or two
I'll be here waiting for you

In my little room at the foot of my bed
Churning out some notes for nobody to hear
But just in case you might be in the wrong place, wrong time
I'll keep on lying in wait

And were I more or less a man
I'd have more sense for less a plan

But falling never changes as long as the law
Of gravity dictates my probable cause
To take your heart, ask it to be mine
And if it won't, you'll have to climb your way back
