lyrics

so close your eyes and wait it out and when you wake up i'll be free from this—300 miles and counting
i thought those words a thousand times, "you should know what you fucking took from me", instead it's season greetings

i thought that winter changed us but i'm still someone you can't trust i wrote you letters in my head.

i know you probably think that's weird but then the house lights turn on and you shine in shades of grey with tired eyes from those lost midnights.
and it's not the seasons that make memories fade away—the show must go on

"just one last time," i tell myself, one broken night to show how fixed i am—a kind of masquerade ball
a million scars, a scratching post, a simple text that shows how young we were

& you're still growing up to be some kind of chemical thing: a simple answer i can't change.
it's just these glimpses after… i know you probably saw them too.

then the house lights turn on and you shine in shades of grey with blue jeans on your white wine stains
and it's not the reason that your face won't fade away: the show must go on.

and it's slices of your ever changing days with short sleeves as the rain pours down
'til it's irish goodbyes (if that's still alright to say)
the show must go on!
