lyrics

I’m driving home,
Thinking about every line you ever wrote.
Sometimes it gets to be too much.
When won’t I need this crutch?
What if my shoe slips under the break,
Or the fog on the glass puts my life at risk?
I’ll never find the words to say,
Or have the chance to rip up this page.
Run up the stairs turn on the light and amp.
What I feel and what I say never overlap.
I’m trying to live out the perfect backstory,
So I can describe our love like Morrissey.

One more dance tonight,
One more line to write,
One more dark cartoon,
One more tablespoon.

(Deep within my room,
One more tablespoon,
Tell me it’s alright,
And I’ll turn off the lights.)

The more I think about calming down,
The more I think about trying to sleep.
Realize I cannot stop this train.
My thoughts are more than what you dream.
But you know I don’t have a clue,
So I’ll just take all of this as true.
And so I thank you for the help.
Read a chapter, then put it back on the shelf.

I think I think too much,
I think you’re wearing blush,
I think I stole that line,
I know I stole that line.
And you know I think that’s fine.
Come to me in a dream,
Tell me what you mean,
I’m jealous you believe.

Sometimes I wish that I’d met you 14 years before.
Your parents at the store, and me at your front door.
Though I can’t drive, I realize when my feelings are ignored.
It’s always true.
But I’d feel like shit for you.

The lights pressed up against the wall,
Bleed on the white that lines the hall.
There you stand, your eyes ablaze.
Reflect the fire that blocks my way
What’s a knife without a sheath?
A lighthouse built to be beneath
The sand that stands for me to form
Glass that hides you from the storm.

Sometimes I wish that I’d met you 14 years before.
Your parents at the store, and me at your front door.
Though I can’t drive, I realize when my feelings are ignored.
It’s always true.
