lyrics

I’ve been so certain I know what I’ve known
I’ve felt the barb on the wire
Soft expectation torn down to the bone
I’ve been so sure of a lie

You’re proving me wrong
Proving me wrong
On a day by day
On a day by day

I've been so certain I know what I’ve known (never know)
I’ve seen the cracks in a smile (piecing together in time)
A shattering window, a fist on a stone (slowly releasing it all)
Sure of the weight of denial (lighter and floating)

You’re proving me wrong
Proving me wrong
On a day by day

I’ve been a framer and I have been framed
A prisoner in my own backyard
Slowly forgiving the blade and the blame
I am releasing the guard

You’re proving me wrong
On a day by day
