love’s last earthquake knocked me to the bone
let me know these shocks are almost gone
+++ and that’s one more thing that I have to fix
+++ one more twist in my line
+++ one more wrinkle and one more hitch
+++ watch it all unwind
ripped a hole in my best Sunday heart
and I’ll patch it if I find a place to start
+++ that’s one more thing that I have to mend
+++ missed that stitch in time
+++ one more wrinkle and one more bend
+++ every ball of twine surely will unwind

on a boat that’s drifting from the shore
and I could’ve sworn the moorings were secure
like a sweet old friend who slipped away
I turned around and all I saw was clear blue bay
+++ that’s one more thing that I have to stop
+++ always sailing blind
+++ one more ripple and one more drop
+++ watch it all unwind
+++ that’s one more thing that I have to fix
+++ missed that stitch in time
+++ one more wrinkle and one more glitch
+++ when everything look’s fine
+++ hangin’ on a line, never less than kind
+++ watch it all unwind…
