You tell me you're an artist, you've got nothing left to prove
You tell me to be patient, everybody waits for you
Time is on your side, and inspiration, too
You tell me that there's genius in every little thing you do.

You speak to me of knowledge, you speak to me of cost
You say, "Are you paying attention, boy? 'Cause you're looking kind of lost"
I say, "That ain't confusion that you're seeing, it's just your gleam is gone"
Every time I see you, you just go on and on and on

You can always tell a story, you can always drop a name
You can answer every question, you're a master of the game
You've got a face for every angle, you've got a face for me
In the rain the other night, I'm still not certain if it's you that I did see

You tell me order is important, there could never be enough
But, what about compassion, baby, have you forgotten about love?
Did you ever learn to listen, you always talk so loud
Maybe someday I'll write a letter, asking "Tell me, are you lonesome now?"
