lyrics

LYRICS:
your face across a crowded room… just wait, this will be over soon… i’d smoke to breathe in anything but your perfume. a flashback to when it all began with red wine in your unsteady hands but i don’t need liquor to be someone i can’t stand. your lipstick shines in candy apple red like a well-worn sign of things we left unsaid
if i could take these blues and you out of my head i would be fine… it’s just these wrinkles in our time. all these colored lights in this greying town… i’d give up the fight but you won’t back down. melted wax before we could even fly.

back porch in artificial light with good friends to make it through the night… your long black hairs in every lyric that i write. long looks, before they disappear, held back in sacrificial mirrors… with time i think you’d hate L.A. as much as here. hallmark greeting cards, not a single tear. no, don’t change your plans! you’re already here! if you leave this time, please don’t turn around…
