tossing copper – the mason lyrics

i’ve held on so long
to what i want
you to become

i see that you are not
who i dreamed you to be
but that’s not your fault

see long ago i made up my mind
she would be the love of my life
but now i see ignorance is bliss
i fell in love with an idea in my head
but that’s not who she is

see i will take a thought
and let it grow
till underneath it’s weight i am caught

when all i saw was a glimpse
of who you might be
and i laid down these bricks

building walls so lovely and strong
there’s no way, no chance i am wrong
our castle stands and i know where she’ll fit
she’ll be with me here in my arms, i’m crazy in love
with who i think she is

when i finally get to see you
i latch onto the hope i see in you
i won’t let go, i’ll say
“look there’s a chance what i hoped for might actually be so!”
but i cannot justify this
small suspicion that slowly is creeping in
that the castle walls are shaking
i fight the fact maybe i was mistaken

i hate when i knew
nothing was real
in all that i had believed to be true

and the walls
came crumbling down
and all i could think was ‘where is all that wasted time now?’

see long ago i made up my mind
she would be the love of my life
now i see i never really know you one bit
i fell in love with an idea in my head
but that’s not who she is
