Overview

Nearsighted
by Daniel Corey

Don’t go slowing down
Don’t go moving around
Don’t you reach too far
Stay right where you are

Knowing all the things I’m told
The sight of failure’s getting old

Don’t you speak to me
Don’t be so absurd
I’m just thinking back
Remembering all your words

I’m just thinking ‘bout this year
Built around my fear

Grace keeps falling off my back
Slip slip sliding through the cracks
The meaning of it all is going slack
I sometimes wonder what you think I’m going through
Nearsighted and I’m blinded at the sight of you

Don’t you feel too proud
Don’t you scream out loud
Nothing ever stayed
King and pawns will play

All the things I meant to say
Common sense got in my way

Grace keeps falling off my back
Slip slip sliding through the cracks
The meaning of it all is going slack
I sometimes wonder what you think I’m going through
Nearsighted and I’m blinded at the sight of you
