every time you look at me i'm overthrown by gravity pulling me down
is it trying to bury me, bring on my early death or hold me safely to the ground?
every word you said to me is carved into my memory like words on a gravestone
i let my heart build a monument and dedicate it to you without realizing i'd made it into my home

what goes around comes back around
and it's all coming back to me
i didn't know how to love someone who needed the ocean
when all i had was the sea
if i could explain i'm sure you'd understand
but you never listen to me
i'm standing trial against everyone i've ever loved
and they've all found me guilty
if i let you destroy me will you finally feel free?

you called me again in the middle of the night
to tell me you found god in the centre of the eyes
of a pretty girl who never cries the way i did every day
now the sun puts on a show, she's taking off her clothes
but the moon just says goodnight
and so it goes with you and i and all our starry-eyed fantasies, washed away
as the trees all shed their leaves, seasons change and so do we
as we burn away our fears
with ink stains on our hands from all the eulogies we read
shaking hands, make us bleed

you are bitter wind
against my freezing skin
the reason i stay in on these cold october days
you're the breath that i inhale
while i write these words
wishing there was something i could say
i know i fall to pieces every time you touch me
but i really want you to stay
my funeral boy, body like a coffin
laying in an empty grave

i tried to write about the end of the world
but i wrote about you instead
your breath is the saddest song i've ever heard
and i can't get it out of my head
