Lyrics

Things have been getting pretty rough around here

No coffee cups flying around the room,

Just daggers born from tears

Let’s try to crawl out from under our breath

We can never break up, so I’ll love you to death

The man I’d become was so comfortably dumb

I believe you could mean it, but you’re not having fun

And I’m sorry

I learned to breath, I guess, some time ago

But just recently I learned what it means to take it slow

I’m lousy with excuses and you know I love to swear

So goddammit, I swear to whatever’s out there

That I love you more now than I ever have, so…

Let’s pick another day

To call it quits and walk away

Let’s find some other time to break down

The storm has gone and blown on through

Shake off the darkness and I will too

You might leave me still, but not today

For now, can we just stay?

Haven't been this goddamn scared in years

Since it was cold as hell where I slept top o the stairs

And I would smoke until my eyes filled up with blood... and stare

Creating pictures of the things we wanted

Quickly I would grow more haunted

You would think by now that I'd be fine

Ya know, like, really stretching out, but it would all be lies

No longer in control of my own shoes, there they go

Quickly running out of booze

Drinking to kill myself to live without you

Over there, where I still stare sometimes

Let’s pick another day

To call it quits and walk away

Let’s find some other time to break down

The storm has gone and blown on through

Shake off the darkness and I will too

You might leave me still, but not today

For now, can we just stay?
