lyrics

You're looking cold
you're looking stiff my dear
I wonder if you even feel me
while I enlarge my lungs upon your chest
as I am breathing.

It's been so long since it was new
but that's got nothing to do with
all the silence in a room
and our expressionless stares that never change
I swore it wouldn't happen
and I promised that it wouldn't be like
all the broken smiles and broken lines
of conversation that they hate.

Your heart beat falls asleep
and your eyes fall victim to a hazy glaze
and you lie there next to me
and I hear nothin'

It's plenty warm in here
But I can still see the frost on your lips
My words upon your skin
were never less than everything you loved.
It's been so long since it was you
who I could say without a doubt
could take my hand and take my heart
and make it lighter than the air itself.

Your heart beat falls asleep
and your eyes fall victim to a hazy glaze
and you lie there next to me
and I hear nothin'

So let's decide what we're doing here
cause I swear we died the day we turned our backs
and we'll walk the ground beneath these cold dead feet while we know we lie with every kiss goodnight

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

Everything we weren't
was everything we should have said
Her heart is leaking out while yours is bleedin'
Everything we weren't
was everything we should have done
Her heart is bleeding out while yours is freezin'.
