I'm lying awake and I feel you breathing
asleep and dreaming next to me
We're lost without
the formula for comfort we've invested in
Time flies like a ghost,
like ribbons of smoke floating weightless and blue
in this room, where there's to remind me
of me without you

Put your hands where I can see
Somethin' doesn't feel right,
like you're feeding me a line
'Cause I swear I've heard this somewhere before
I'll swallow every word between your lips,
but if you're just lying through your teeth
then maybe you're right and we knew it all along
And we're better off alone

The bands of light of the morning
through the blinds are there
to wake me when
I could never miss you more than when
the sheets are cold beside me
(and those quiet nights behind me)

Put your hands where I can see
It's fair to say
my better days have got the best of me

Somethin' doesn't feel right,
like you're feeding me a line
'Cause I swear I've heard this somewhere before
I'll swallow every word between your lips,
but if you're just lying through your teeth
then maybe you're right and we knew it all along
And we're better off alone
