My body lingers around you
Like the shadows of an abandoned house
And I stay there
But I would go anywhere

My eyelids are hooked
To the weight of a thousand problems
The harder I pull, the more I tear through the skin
I somehow still can't sleep
My lips need the taste of yours
And it all leaves me to wonder
How I've lost sight of the exit door
You leave me wanting more

My heart still beats
While you soundly sleep

I stumble aimlessly
Through a gray adolescence
The closer I get is the further I walk away
Bury me in my own backyard
Not even in death can I stand amongst a crowd

My heart still beats
While you soundly sleep

You tore me up like the receipt in your pocket
That you left there all day long
