god damn,
you were the best.
a dozen roses couldn't say goodbye
to all the heartache so I left them in the garden.
the swollen eclipse now leaves me in the gloom
of another episode.
she's lost in jaded memories.
draping over the sun.
will this be our swansong?
our last dance?
come take my hand and we'll watch fate destroy us.
god damn,
you were the best.
I know reality's gone mad
with the blink of an eye.
where's that girl I once knew?
where's that girl... yeah
her illustrations paint a picture.
now her dirty tears bleed.
i've been looking for something
so give it to me
because I collect hearts and
yours is mine sweet thing.
now the flowers bloom in june
lay at the grave of our final eve.
fade from me with september sunsets
and run away with my heart.
these memories still hang over my head like a halo,
but not will this angel watch over my shoulder.
how long will I hide behind this pen
and how long will you wait for me...

I guess until the ink runs out
I guess until the ink runs out...
