you say that you’re falling but I don’t believe you ‘cause you’ll only jump when you know you’ll land oh you say that you’re hurting but I won’t relieve you ‘cause that thorn’s got sorrow that’ll run you down and the dope’s run low, my pills have all fell and you claim it’s your heaven, but this is my hell you hang onto me like a bad memory yet I’m sad to lend you the night if this is your pain, then you never got me this is how you fight you say “don’t let it eat what’s inside you” but you’ll never hold your hand to me oh you say that you’re hiding but I can’t have you ‘cause your words like knives are a lullaby and we both got that rhythm, we dance to this song a masquerade of how we went wrong you hang onto me like an old memory can’t shake you into the night if this is your pain, then you never got me this is how you fight you say that you’re falling but I don’t believe you ‘cause you’ll only jump when you know you’ll land

never been real good at writing happy songs but I guess I’ll start with you maybe I’ll just start out with a metaphor it’s a sea of light, not blue and I have never felt a love like this a wordless string of feels one, two, three don’t they always start out counting? I’ll throw in some seven chords yeah, we’ll really make it into something I don’t know why I babble when you look into my eyes I don’t know how your corny jokes can always make me smile oh I snort when I laugh but I laugh out all the time with you, with you when you’re not here, I eat cereal for dinner ‘cause it turns out you’re a real good cook I win most of the games even ones I’m not very good at but you steal my focus with this look and I have never felt a love like this can’t seem to make much sense one, two, three don’t they always start out counting? I’ll throw in some seven chords yeah, we’ll really make it into something I don’t know how you catch me when I fall I don’t know how I feel safe when I’m not at all my heart is heavy, but I like the feeling this time with you, with you and I have never felt a love like this can’t seem to make much sense one, two, three don’t they always start out counting? I’ll throw in some seven chords yeah, we’ll really make it into something I don’t know how you catch me when I fall I don’t know how I feel safe when I’m not at all my heart is heavy, but I like the feeling this time with you, with you

new york, the sun is going down will you sing a prayer for me? will you sing it out loud? new york, my old habits are back your voices faint in the street a siren melody calling all the alarms written on the sky of the empire shadows weaving through new york, of a thousand ways to get lost I wanna get lost in you new york, the sun is going down setting underneath the skyline blooming underground new york, you know I can’t resist I see your buildings shake the angels and I just wanna drift away calling all the alarms written on the sky of the empire shadows weaving through new york, of a thousand ways to get lost I wanna get lost in you

we used to take our time, go dancing in the rain run circles all around a wildflower’s name but I was tugged and you jumped forward in the same way someone falls I’m gonna be the one to hold you in my arms and tell you just enough how beautiful you are darling you’re safe here, I’ll warm you through the night till morning comes take my hand in yours you’re not alone anymore and in the spaces where the stars refuse to shine I see sunlight in your eyes we used to color shapes and mark them in the sky until your pain had turned it all to black and white but I will be here whenever you decide to come on down take my hand in yours you’re not alone anymore and in the spaces where the stars refuse to shine I see sunlight in your eyes there’s a silence that awakes this just hold onto me, you’ll stand take my hand in yours you’re not alone anymore and in the spaces where the stars refuse to shine I see sunlight in your eyes
