  1. It Adds Up

From the recording For the Birds

Lyrics

How am I gonna know if you don't call me up?
How am I gonna change if you don't bring it up?
I know you're mad, but you don't let it out
Just another subject we don't talk about

I know your daddy wasn't the best of men
So, how could I think that you would let me in?
You built an altar to your precious pain
And every time there's someone else to blame

Stack up all your promises
And all your grievances
Yeah, it adds up to nothing
Yeah, your loving

In a good book, you don't just skip to the end
And in a real love, you wouldn't just unfriend me
Heaven knows I'm not a perfect man
A coward will run, but my heart don't understand

Stack up all your promises
And all your grievances
Yeah, it adds up to nothing
Yeah, your loving

And I thought that I could know you
And I thought that you would stand by me
And I thought I could love you
But I was wrong

How am I gonna know if you don't call me up?
How am I gonna change if you don't bring it up?
I know you're mad, but you don't let it out
Just another subject we don't talk about

Stack up all your promises
And all your grievances
Yeah, it adds up to nothing
Yeah, your loving
