Put your heart back under your sleeve
Don't know what you want me to believe
You give me pink lies but black and white words

It's another play you want me to love
Hold your hand out to the dark
Because we're luck while
Oh my heart so drunk
It's my tale amid them all
So pull over
Let's watch the mountains burn
This is where I want to be
And let that sad sad song
That always plays in your head finally sleep

Does she sit and think of you?
Seems like that's what I always do
You're cloaked in red all drenched in blue
Tired of guessing what you feel
What is true
What is true
And what is real
You are so high up they can't see
You're hiding
You were so full of courage
Your actions still louder than them
So turn your back, hear it's crack
Now so glad next time
Borrow, please don't steal

If California calms the sparkle in your eyes
So who's the next, won't you break
Next to him, next to her
Don't walk over to me
Don't tell I'm not listening
It's only packing with the space
I've forgotten the shape now of your pretty face
Don't hold on to me right here
Hold my hand, we're almost to our castle now

Don't let the tumbleweeds here rest
Just feel the beating of our hearts inside our chests
I have seldom waited for you tonight for our love
But now we sleep in our dreams where our castle lies
Let's watch the mountains burn
This is where I want to be
And let that sad sad song
That always plays in your head finally die

    General CommentI love this song!

    Does she sit and think of you?
    Seems like that's what I always do
    You're cloaked in red all drenched in blue
    Tired of guessing what you feel
    What is true
    What is true
    And what is real

    General Commentthese are the for-real lyrics:
    (nick sent them to a friend of mine)

    push your heart back under your sleeve
    don't know what you want me to believe
    you give me pink prayers but black and white words
    is it love or pain you want me to learn?
    hold your hand after the dark
    kiss the luck well omaha's so drunk
    it's my terabithia
    so pull over
    let's watch the mountains burn
    this is where i want be
    and let that sad song that always plays in your head finally sleep

    let's just sit and think of you
    seems like that's what i always do
    you're cloaked in red i'm drenched in blue
    tired of guessing what you feel
    what is true and what is real
    your eyes so wide yet they can't see
    quit hiding
    your words so full of courage
    your actions still louder than them
    so turn your back, mirror's cracked, now so black
    next time, borrow please don't steal
    the california cars pass and sparkle in your eye
    so who's the next one to break, next to fake, next to hide

    don't walk over to me
    don't talk, i'm not listening
    spent long blackening the space
    i've forgotten the shape now of your pretty face

    hold on to me right here
    hold my hand
    we're almost to our castle now
    don't let the tumbleweeds arrest
    just feel the beating of our hearts inside our chests

    i have set a new timeline for my life
    but now we sleep in our dreams where our castle lies
    let's watch the mountains burn this is where i want to lie
    and let that sad sad song that always plays in your head finally die

    This is probably my favorite Tilly quote. I find myself singing it out loud all the time.

    General Commenthahaha these lyrics are really incorrect, but it's the soooonnnggg that counts. It's one that I could put on repeat forever. Or not. But you get how much I love this song.
