Lyrics

I remember a rooftop making out
Downstairs the carpet screamed so loud
I waited so long for that night
Then I just turned away
And I know every street
I know it’s side
But I was lost, unfound, not right

Maybe there’s something wrong inside
Now I've got nowhere to go
My answer's all that I've got
I'm so sorry for so many things
That I haven't said yet
This is the waiting room I spent my whole life in
They gave me a thousand hands so I could count my sins
If I'm lucky maybe I’ll finish before the roof caves in

I lost my life on the first try
You found it miles down the line
A swollen face with
3 first names

You kissed the taste back on my tongue
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days and days

When we woke up
My heart I choked up
Had to say I love you way too soon
But right there on your couch
You loved me too
Right there on your couch
You loved me too

19 and sober once or twice
I caught some junkie's bad advice
Up to my eyes in others' problems
Couldn’t see I never solve them
My Only skin and bone

And this and pills unknown
I took my lousy shot
At public recognition
Could never pull the trigger
If I wasn't shaking

I lost my life on the first try
You found it miles down the line
A swollen face with
3 first names

You kissed the taste back in my tongue
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days and days

When we woke up
My heart I choked up
Had to say I love you way too soon
But right there on your couch
You loved me too
Right there on your couch
You loved me too
