Saline Solution

from Painted Sky by Schweitzer

lyrics

The steering wheel was hard to hold just an hour or so ago
My hands start to sweat when I think of you
But now they’re dry as ashes knowing they’ll touch you nevermore
It’s hard to take that halo from above you

Now I held certain strong beliefs about the way you felt
And I don’t know what to do with the admission in your eyes
I could kill your lover but he’s only half at fault
I could never hurt you and don’t know what else to do
So I’ll just take the saline solution… and cry

It’s a long long way from where I’m at to where I plan to be
And what I do when I get there’s still a mystery to me
But distance doesn’t matter I’ll spend nights pacing the floor
Wondering when you think of me what is the image that you see

Now I held certain strong beliefs about the way you felt
And I don’t know what to do with the admission in your eyes
I could kill your lover but he’s only half at fault
I could never hurt you and don’t know what else to do
So I’ll just take the saline solution… and cry

But I know what went wrong
Too human to deny desire, not enough to be strong
And what makes this so sad
If we weren’t still in love we wouldn’t be so awfully mad

Well I’ve pressed my case so hard by now
my knuckles have turned white
The wheel feels like the bones of some old snake
And I’ve been in my head so long the sky is near too bright
The urge to stop and call you’s like an earthquake

Now I held certain strong beliefs about the way you felt
And I don’t know what to do with the admission in your eyes
I could kill your lover but he’s only half at fault
I could never hurt you and don’t know what else to do
So I’ll just take the saline solution… and cry

Now I held certain strong beliefs about the way you felt
And I don’t know what to do with the admission in your eyes
I could kill your lover but he’s only half at fault
I could never hurt you and don’t know what else to do
So I’ll just take the saline solution… and cry
I’ll cry... Mmm, I’ll cry

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
