A New Arrangement

If you could change your days, arranging them in some sweet new sequence
Like any new arrangement’s gonna make a difference
Cause it’s the moment that you’re living in and not the one that follows
That makes this mess you’re cleaning in your head
Time still drags you forward, though you keep resisting
You know it’s what you leave behind, you’ll soon start missing
And the people you once counted on now say it’s all depending
On how you act and how you treat yourself
And that’s not very well
So baby, when I call for you
I want you to come
Explain yourself to everyone
You nod in an acknowledgement of your frequent mood swings
Yeah, what good’s an acknowledgement, it still don’t change things
We’ve tried all forms of encouragement, but it’s still no better
You just can’t seem to fake or force a smile
Not even a little one
But baby, when I call to you
I want you to come
And lay it out for everyone
Exactly how it was before any of this happened
And why you can’t leave it behind
Now don’t just, don’t just sit there when I call to you
I told you to come and lay it out for
Don’t feel awkward
Lay it out for everyone
