Do you remember when you and I
were left, and nice and we
covered up what little was left of me
and became one in the sand

The car is fading into nothing
the lies are pouring and escaping
I cant breath alone
you know, you know
the better part of me is stolen
whenever you go

we fell fast
lift our faces long at last
with nothing left to show
we get up slow
laying as the more we know
and through so long we'll last

The car is fading into nothing
the lies are pouring and escaping
I cant breath alone
you know, you know
the better part of me is stolen
whenever you go

closer than before
further than ive ever been from anyone
closer than before
further than ive ever been from anyone

cover up, wrap your wrists in gauze
the fill your heart with cause
is the real or not
cover up, wrap your wrists in gauze
fill your heart with cause
is the real or not

The car is fading into nothing
lies are pouring and escaping
I cant breath alone
you know, you know
the better part of me is stolen
whenever you go

    General Commentoh yes...the correct lyrics are as follows:

    Do you remember when you and I
    Were less than us and we
    Covered up what little was left of me
    And became one in the same

    The colors fading into nothing
    The lines are blurring and escaping
    I can’t breathe alone
    You know, you know
    the better part of me is stolen
    Whenever you go

    We fell fast
    Lift our face long at last
    With nothing left to show
    We get up slow,
    Let it rest the more we know
    It proves how long we’ll last

    The colors fading into nothing
    The lines are blurring and escaping
    I can’t breathe alone
    You know, you know
    The better part of me is stolen
    Whenever you go

    Closer than before,
    Further than I’ve ever been from anyone
    Closer than before,
    Further than I’ve ever been from anyone

    Cover up, wrap your wrists in gauze
    Fill your heart with cause
    If it’s real or not
    Cover up, wrap your wrists in gauze
    Fill your heart with cause
    If it’s real or not no

    The colors fading into nothing
    The lines are blurring and escaping
    I can’t breathe alone
    You know, you know
    The better part of me is stolen
    Whenever you go

    General CommentI think that instead of "Lift our face long at last" it's "proved our fates wrong at last" and instead of "Let it rest the more we know" it's "the less we learn the more we know" to correct the corrected lyrics. Anyway...I love this song! I think it describes that bliss of a new relationship...and then all the way threw the end when you have to "cover up, wrap your wrists in gauze, fill your heart with cause" you have to accept it and try to fix any damage and move on. I love the line "You know the better part of me is stolen when ever you go." I think this whole song is about how someone else can become part of you and when you lose them it's like losing a part of yourself.
