lyrics

Tell me. Where have you been?
God, I need you in my bed.
There tired nights spent alone have no spark.
Just stale air and tangled webs hanging high above my floors.
They’re unkept and unswept. Clean them out you know best.

These words will numb your tongue / until you can't speak but you can run
/ from these fears / the ones you called love
Oh you, dyed your eyes and paint them black masking the beauty you swore you lack
If I could show you your light I swear you’d burn my florescent sky.

There’s a falling star about my bed and it keeps me up at night.
Until my visions blurred and not a single word leaves my mouth until its sounding right.

Someone throw me a rope. I can't speak but I can choke out the words that I’ll save for you.
Well. you are the firefly caught in my jar I’ve begun to feel sorry for.
I stole your light cause I can’t survive so on my shelf is where you’re stored.
And I can’t live without you anymore

There’s a falling star about my bed and it keeps me up at night.
Until my visions blurred and not a single word leaves my mouth until its sounding right.
And when I get too close and I feel its warmth you’re the spark I need to survive.
And I thank you for all you've endured you’re the spark in this weary life.
