Return to relative normalcy

I think
It's getting to the point where I can be myself again
I think
It's getting to the point where we have almost made amends
I think
It's getting to the point that is the hardest part

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster, I'll point you home
I'll point you home

You think
I only think about you when we're both in the same room
You think
I'm only here to witness the remains of love exhumed
You think
We're here to play a game of who-loves-more-than-whom

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster, I'll point you home

You think
It's only fair to do what's best for you and you alone
You think
It's only fair to do the same to me when you're not home
I think
It's time to make this something that is more than only fair

So if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster, I'll point you home

But I'm warning you, don't ever do
Those crazy messed-up things that you do
If you ever do, I promise you
I'll be the first to crucify you
Now it's time to prove
That you've come back here to rebuild...

- Barenaked Ladies, "Call and Answer"

It took me a while to remember who you were...but thanks for the comment, Mao. :)

Yeah, "Call and Answer" is a very good song. I had the sudden impulse to sing it after so long.
