lyrics

I am not a painter but I like to play with colors I can see
Holding two dimensions in my left hand while I set the other free
And no its not a masterpiece but each one seems a little more complete
And it helps me calm my nerves and it makes it easier to go to sleep

I am not a lover but I like to love some people quietly
Listening to couples talk in coffee shops while I sit down to read
I don’t know if envy has any locomotive properties
But I’ll shovel green into the fire in that engine room and make them scream

And I won’t be known as a doer of anything
I'll just work behind the scenes making lives a bit more lovely

I am not a thinker, but I like to think you think about me too
And if that isn’t true I’d like to think I’d wanna hear that from you
But I think I know too well that I’d rather make a fort in my living room
Make a sign, say no girls inside, convince myself its not a tomb

And I won’t be known as a doer of anything
I’ll just sit there on the stairs taking notes on the living things
And I won’t be known as a doer of anything
I’ll just sit there on the stairs taking notes on the living things
