lyrics

"Lock the door behind you,
Breathe in the moldy air.
Pray the Lord your soul to keep,
But is anybody there?
No, they've gone home for the weekend,
Leave your message at the tone.
I'd love to leave you here,
But come on, I'll take you home.

I wish you'd let your hair down,
It reminds me of the girl I once knew.
Skin smelt just like the summer,
And her lips always tasted like the moon.
I was never that good at dancing,
But you taught me to fly,
In one night with you.
And maybe I never quite let you go.

I was wrong, you were right.
You can spin my head about the room,
And teach our bodies to collide.
It's okay, we're only days away from the last time.
Lets get this right.

And maybe now you thinking,
All the tears you cried were so out of place.
And the moments that I'm missing,
Does it feel the same when he wipes them from your face?
And maybe when he hits you,
It reminds you that you're alive,
And in time they'll go away.
The bruises from last night's fight.
You don't look the same.
(You don't look the same)

I was wrong, you were right.
You can put your teeth back in your mouth,
But that smile don't seem the same.
It's okay, someday you'll see the light,
And that's the last time.
If you're done then I'm done too.

And all I wanted,
Was to know that I'm good enough.
And faith's been discarded.
Oh you, oh you.
I never thought that I'd meet you here,
To face you I'm strong enough, you know,
But I'm too scared to breathe.
Don't leave, don't leave."
