(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Love in memory 
Was a plague that consumed me
Shifted all my priorities
Things I'd die to keep
Swept through all that I hoped to reap
God, I loved how it ruined me

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

I have kept the hurt buried deep into winter dirt
I watch at night when the mound stirs
This is not the burn I've known
It's an ache in my every bone
Maybe you want to be alone
Maybe I

Oh, My head is aching
But if I keep very still
I might be able 
To make this work until 
The end of the weekend
Weak, but I'll pretend
That you still want me 
I'm the one you adore
But I'm just shy of sure

(Oh, oh)
(I'm just shy of sure)

When do things suffice?
Can you be happy all your life?
Do you think it can happen twice?
Maybe that's a swing
Hey, you can't win without entering
Are you cool to lose everything?
Roll the dice

My head is aching
But if I keep very still 
I might be able 
To make this work until
The end of the weekend
Weak, but I'll pretend
That you still want me 
I'm the one you adore
But I'm just shy of sure

Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)

Oh, My head is aching
But if I keep very still 
I might be able 
To make this work until
The end of the weekend
Weak, but I'll pretend
That you still want me 
I'm the one you adore
But I'm just shy of sure

(I'm just shy of sure)
