lingering still

I like to learn things slow
I like learning a lot
I like to get it all again and in the end you know you
get what you got
I like to mean what I say
But it don’t always come through
’cause if I say it all again again again it doesn’t make
it more true

And the world’s like a science and I’m like a secret
But I saw you lingering still
I saw you lingering still

It’s all just news to me
Don’t really care if it hurts
’cause if I knock it I won’t know it, then I know that
it will only get worse
He was different at first
But then he won’t understand
Because he’s never gonna know me if he doesn’t want
to just shake my hand

And the world’s like a science and I’m like a secret
But I saw you lingering still
I saw you lingering still
