Lyrics for the Day – Why Would I Now?

Socio-philosophy from the Decemberists. Good question.

Have I ever lost your way?
Have I ever left you waylaid?
Have I ever come un-staid?
Why would I now?
There were times I loathed your name
There were times I laid on the blame
There were times I brought on the shame
Why would I now?
But I will never be your familiar soul
And I will never see your interior whole
But have I ever stood back and watched you fall?
Ditched your call?
Caught you bent around?
Why would I now?
 
Have I ever steered you wrong?
Have I ever strung you along?
Have I ever kept you long?
Why would I now?
There were times I broke through the walls
There were times I broke through it all
There were times it felt so hard
Why would I now?
 
But I will never be your familiar soul
And I will never see your interior whole
But have I ever stood back and watched you fall?
Ditched your call?
Caught you bent around?
Why would I now?
 
Though the years they may unbraid you
How it all nearly unmade you laying down
Why would it now?
 
Remember when it all went dark
Remember when it first ran apart
Remember how I held my mark
So why would I now?
But I will never be your familiar soul
And I will never see your interior whole
But have I ever stood back and watched you fall?
Ditched your call?
Caught you bent around?
Why would I now?
