She thought she caught me staring, but I was only glaring
At the exit sign
She moved across the marble floor, passed his gaze and out the door
The next one’s mine she smiles
As I followed out to find him, somebody there behind him
Raised him up and brought him down
‘What’s it all about?’ I heard you ask
I said it’s nothing but the sound

Not knowing what to make of it my mind began to shake a bit
I stepped inside
Felt a hand upon my shoulder, I turned around to hold her
And I don’t know why
I’d never seen her anywhere, I didn’t have a right to care
She kept me at arm’s length
‘What’s it all about?’ I heard her ask
I said I didn’t have the strength

That fortune teller sold to me a vision that could only be
A waste of time
She told me I was broken, I told another joke and
We were out of time
But I kind of liked the lies, I didn’t mind the price
She opened up the sky
I asked her what the cards were for
She told me not to open up my eyes

There’s not a single part of me that doesn’t want to try to be
The best I can
There’s times I get so lost before I find my way I’ve crossed
Another line again
I don’t know where I went wrong, I can find it in a song
I can run my trouble down
Don’t ask me ‘bout the weather
It’s always never nothing but the sound

Don’t ask me ‘bout the weather
It’s always never nothing but the sound
Don’t ask me ‘bout the weather
It’s always never nothing but the sound
