lyrics

Dancing on these wisps of grey
trying to forget the way you say:
"It feels like we're falling apart, my dear.
And loving a lie has always been my greatest fear."
Well I'm depending on the pit in my stomach
for a little piece of insight
retracing my steps with the roadmap etched
on the inside of my thigh.

Phantom blisters on my feet
from dancing on deceiving streets
you need me like a broken wrist
the pain is gone, I'm hardly missed
it feels like we're falling apart.

The night unfolds around me
not a soul in sight
I only see little bits of you
in the boy who made his first and only move.
He doesn't have the gap in your teeth.
His words don't shine from underneath.
But he's safe, he's strong, he's easy to please.
He's the needle and the thread to sow your heart on your sleeve.

I'm desperate for a love
that doesn't turn with the tide.
The distance was destructive
and the hunger in your eyes is telling me
(*telling me)
I'm no good for your heart
I'm killing us
I'm poisonous
it feels like we're falling apart.
