A Room for Everything

This song is by 10,000 Maniacs and appears on the album Love Among the Ruins (1997).

You were looking away from me
Western skies calling you
Colors spilling, running, dazzling you
I was looking the other way
Voices call from the east
I saw my roots of the trees there planted at my feet

It could be I'm searching
For a place so small
With room for everything
Where world on worlds revolve
But how can we wait

I wouldn't hold you, no
I wouldn't hold you
I wouldn't hold you back

Suppose I was the clever one
And words came easy to me
I could say
I was writing a song about you, you and me
Maybe that verse is yet to be found
But waits inside of me
A secret room, a tangled web to unweave

It could be I'm searching
For a place so small
With room for everything
Where world on worlds revolve
But how can we wait
Knowing our ways
How can we hold on
Still you know it's not too late

I wouldn't hold you, no, I wouldn't hold you
I wouldn't hold you back...
