I can’t believe that you actually came Just put your words into my mouth and as I nod I’ll relive my mistake They told me you weren’t there so I left And what’s pathetic is I went home with you only ‘cause he never did So please stay away from me and I won’t promise a thing And if you’re a catch, I’m a throw But I swear now that I didn’t look I don’t believe it and I never did Out on the lake there were stones that we throw And in the palm trees they were hooting, they were laughing as the night unfolds Stop naming every song that you like Because we don’t care we don’t even think you deserve to know the time Please Stay

Tell me it doesn’t hurt Tell me it’s not the same I’ll tell you you’re not the first A sinking object in a lake Let’s try and go back to before Before you even knew I cared I’ll make you feel the same again With open eyes you look so dead So you painted over the blue graveyard door And you’ve broken that mirror What if I don’t trust myself to try? With my eyes shut and mouth open I was yelling out the window now she’s dancing out of time You painted over that black graveyard door Taking shallow breaths as you walked away Because I sang every word So if you gave me another chance I’d just make the same mistakes again I’d pick you up again We could make the same mistakes forever
3.
You’re longing for loss You’re fading away You were never strong enough to say Your plans were wrong And now you’re here to stay I was right, he was right Now I’m hanging over I am here forever It’s tearing me apart it’s so unreal We looked at apartments together And we talked about the weather, fell asleep at the wheel I hope I can shield my eyes because your smile is solid gold But make sure to take pictures of yourself So you remember what you look like

You should have seen us before I wish I wouldn’t react to sinking low again And I will slowly encase The world as it gets deep so it won’t seem so far Just like it was before The more I try to hold on, the more it disappears The more I try to repress the things that made me this way They will surface in time As if unlocking a cage Your feather ruffle as if there’s somewhere to be I wish I wouldn’t react to the sound of four words leaving rest again If you could do it again would you? The more it disappears for you, the more I can’t let go The more these feelings stretch, the more they enclose around my ankles again

I don’t know what caused me to glance over in you general direction “The sun is over the hill so now I hope nothing else happens” This momentary glance, the cemetery kiss You’ve held everything so now my hands are falling asleep I don’t understand you, I’m circling around you I think I saw you in my dreams but you were falling asleep They say that you might lose your mind So let’s not get carried away this time! I don’t know what caused you to tell me that you’re starting to look just like them It’s lonely in hell so I bet it’s lonely up in heaven This momentary bliss, the cemetery kissed him And withheld everything so now my hands are falling asleep

I cannot explain this sudden urge for a sound sleep This was the warmest heart I’ve felt before I met you You were growling, you were growing, you were following me down I’ve been afraid for like five years you wouldn’t work it out I had a dream where I met you at our place But I didn’t think that you’d see me when I shut up You were bullish, you were grinning oh far away You seemed fleeting but you looked like you might stay So I guess it’s unfair of me to say that I miss you But I’ve missed so many chances to say it before so how about it? The timing is not right but when will it be right? The timing is not right but when will it be?
9.
I know you, just stand up You know it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault You’re going to make it worse Because I’m going to take you down with me Not going to hold your breath Just keep sinking Because I’ve been thinking about losing on purpose for so long I will not walk away until I’m dead Well you can go to hell Make up your fucking mind, but I’ll see you there Call him awake Or you can go to bed Won’t that just solve your problems? I’ll see you there Why didn’t you stand up? If it’s not my fault then it’s not anyone’s I will not walk away until I hear you say it I want to hear you say it, so come on and say it Why did you ask for help When I can’t even dress well or comb my hair? I guess I’ll go back to sleep Confront you in my dreams but I never see you there

Body Is Dead 10:34
Look away All without knowing I should keep going Ignore your face It never happened This never happened And in this darkness I foolishly run When I left I was so high but I don’t know how And in this darkness I foolishly run to you I couldn’t close my eyes because I’d been here before Circled lives You weren’t coming I wish I was coming Close my eyes I don’t believe it A story I can’t quite piece together without you And in this darkness I foolishly run When I left I was so high but I don’t know how And in this darkness I foolishly run to you You suggested we burn the lives of everyone we ignored
