Smashing - Ray LaMontagne

Listen to the sound of the seaside crashing
Cloak on a hook in the hallway
Smashing red and yellow Teacups
Tripping over clover
"Have another pull" cries the Piping Plover

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

Sitting in the cool of the shadows under
Can you hear the laughter of the River Daughter?
Under water fish are flashing
In the sky a thunder crashing

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who says:

"I look at you and I don't know who I am"
"I look at you, I see my life as a sham"
"Am I just a con-man?"
(I fooled you once...and I can do it again...)

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who says:

"You should be here with me now"

Looking through the glass
as the Moon rolls over Church and Steeple, Hill and Harbor
Do you ever wonder what it is inside us?
Do you ever wonder where it is inside us?

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who says:

"I look at you and I don't know who I am"
"I look at you, I see my life as a sham"
"Am I just a con-man?"
(I fooled you once...and I can do it again...)

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who says:

"You should be here with me now"
