The tears won't even come, I feel so numb, so swept aside, so dumb.
And you told me you were scared of suicide, on the night that your best friend’s brother died.
And I feel the water rising around us. Maybe that's OK.
And I thought, 'Well what could you say to make it ever make sense to his mother?'
The razor was dull. The water cold against my skin.
Just show me a glove covered hand, a perfumed dress is more than I can stand.
And I feel as though I've done something wrong. How I miss you when you're gone.
We looked so silly there all decomposed, half turned to dust in tattered clothes, though we probably look just as silly now.
What is this hole in my heart that I cannot abide? I just want you to stay with me tonight.
Some of it is just transcendental, and some of it is just really dumb.
All the bowing and waving, so goddamn polite. I was thinking of jumping from my window last night.
I was only twenty-one, I wasn't having any fun and the words you said tore through my head like bullets from a gun.
We traded blindness for wisdom and some lines around our eyes.
Oh no, sir, I must say you're wrong. I must disagree, oh no, sir, I must say you're wrong.
But you were always a mess. You were always aloof. It's awful I guess. But it's the awful truth.
Were you happy? Were you honest? Did you ever believe that any of this was real?
If you're a shepherd, then I'll be your sheep until dawn, oh until dawn.
I hear our song, press repeat, smell your perfume on the sheets. You always said, “Boy, you’re not so tough.”
And you knew it all along, I was unhappy all along. And your body whole and warm telling me to just come home.
I feel the restless beat of the sleepless night to come.
And I don't have some house of stone, but I can see the sea. And most of all I know that I am happy just to be me.
The way that you screamed. They way that you cried. The way that you'd wipe your eyes and fall against my side.
You'd give anything for her to say them once more, the words you believed at the start.
So many lives I've lived and died, but none so much as the one I lived with you.
But you know those words that you said? They get stuck here in my head. And this feeling I dread? It makes me wish I was dead.
And you searched in yourself but could not find an answer. Now the feeling grows inside of you like a cancer.
Standing at your doorway, my stomach all tangled and tight. Have it your way. Oh god where are you tonight?
It's the end, the end of the 70's. It's the end, the end of the century.
And you feel hopeless and homeless and lost in the haze of the wine.
You can cut the tension with a knife; we’re expecting rain tonight. There’s a weather system blowing in from Santa Ana all night.
If you'll avert your gaze from the word on the sign, let me whisper it in your ear: 'Cause the sign says 'run.'
You told me, 'Just be brave. Remember all the gifts you gave. And how you felt like you were saved, like you were singing from beyond the grave.'
I'm a child, I'm a ghost, I'm a slur, I'm a boast, I'm a prince, I'm a king, I'm a rhyme, I'm a ring...
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss, 'cause that's all that I'm wishin' to be ownin'.
It was a shotgun forest wedding, but they forgot to bring the guns.
You've got that callous mouth, all your endless doubts, we spent these fifteen weeks trying to work it out.
I’ve never known love, this is just my best guess.
We're not standing still for this firing line while you decide who lives, who dies. I hope you choke on all your lies!
And you go home alone and you're checking your phone and you're looking at me like I'm something you own.
Now I picture you like snowflakes, like desperate pouring rain. Like the beating of the drum in a parade of the insane.
And I feel this sinking feeling as Missy grabs my hand, and we lose ourselves in the harmonies, the white-robed beauty of this band.
I got nothing to do but stare at these walls and take some time to screw my head on right.
But all the people say, 'We won't forget the day. What you lived to see, it takes our breath away.'
I tore myself apart that night just wondering where you’d gone, with the howling dogs screaming in the alleyway and all the angels on your lawn.
Your eyes so wide, your face aglow. It's the face of someone I don't know.
