I've taken all the notes you gave me and built a paper plane to carry this broken heart and sleeping pills...The next morning I'll be gone

as autumn sends its best wishes the search is over and I'm still missing. From up here perfect seems oh so wrong.

This shattered glass lines the cracks in the floor but the bullet missed its mark. The record skipped...and the needle cut your lips. But I'll miss you when you're gone.

Your ink filled eyes, they blink and the tears stain your porcelain cheeks a cinematic smile is kind on the eyes...we rehearse and we rehearse these heartfelt lines(lies)

I've taken all the notes you gave me and built a paper plane to carry this broken heart and sleeping pills...The next morning I'll be gone

Your lipstick still haunts me. It's ghost on my collar. Red and white they collide. Bruises fade but your love stains, stains. Stains. Stains me.

Yeah baby its too bright in this ballroom tonight so turn out the lights. I can see the silhouette of hurt in your eyes and the knives in your back. God knows I slipped, saying sorry with these marks on my lips. God knows i slipped. Saying sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

This shattered glass lines the cracks in the floor but the bullet missed its mark. The record skipped...and the needle cut your lips. But I'll miss you when you're gone.

    General CommentThis song always creeped me out. Because in Sep of 06 my boyfriend at the time wrote a letter to me, then tried to kill himself with sleeping pills while he went to bed.

    Just weird.
