If I Wanted Someone Lyrics

Like the memory from your mother's house
From before you got too old
Like the feeling from a photograph
Before its meanings all got told
The words I say can be silver but what's left unsaid could be gold
So get to know me once I go away

Maybe 'cause I come from such an empty-hearted town
Or maybe 'cause some love of mine had really let me down
But the only time I am lonely is when others are around
I just never end up knowing what to say

If I wanted someone to clean me up, I'd find myself a maid
If I wanted someone to spend my money, I wouldn't need to get paid
If I wanted someone to understand me, I'd have so much more to say
I want you to make the days move easy

I took everything I thought from what it means to be a man
We need words to be put to what we do not understand
While you're lean into the echoes and you do not raise a hand
Oh woman, help me see it like it is

If I wanted someone to clean me up, I'd find myself a maid
If I wanted someone to spend my money, I wouldn't need to get paid
If I wanted someone to understand me, I'd have so much more to say
I want you to make the days move easy
(2X)

If I wanted someone to clean me up, I'd find myself a maid
If I wanted someone to spend my money, I wouldn't need to get paid
If I wanted someone to cut me down, I'd have handed you the blade
I want you to make the days move easy
I just want you to make the days move easy

A lament for unreturned love. He doesn't want all these other things, just his feelings returned as he feels for her.
