The first does the talking cause the second one's not speaking to them now
She is thinking is that the same tongue that he put inside her mouth
And her room has gotten colder since she left her door open
And her room has gotten colder since she left that damn door open

And I feel better knowing that
Feels much better knowing

Sold me to the earth
Needles of your eyes
No one likes a failure
But I'll sleep on the floor
Cause there's no room in your bed
But that's the way you like it

I'll just wait right here (let it go, let it go now)
Cause I got no where else to be (let it go, let it go now)
Besides it's almost morning (let it go)
You can't run from me (let it go, let it go now)
Cause you can't leave the house (let it go)
So that makes you a traitor
A traitor
A traitor

The first one just start shaking whenever he appears the seconds gone
There's no use blaming it's not his fault that this hate runs through his core

There is nothing but regret
And it hurts for me to breathe
Feel the weight upon my chest
A thousand pounds of your deceit

Please don't look at me
Try not to get scared
Cause no one likes a coward
And waiting in the wings
Tired of feeling tense
The second one's a liar

Don't believe in him (let it go, let it go now)
Cause you no it's not my fault (let it go, let it go now)
This is what you wanted
Sold me to the earth (let it go, let it go now)
The needles of your eye (let it go, let it go now)
No one likes a failure
Failure
Failure

    General CommentWow.
    I just sort of found Commander Venus, I've been a Bright Eyes fan for awhile.
    I love the first stanza, but you can barely hear it in the song. :[

    General Commentdoes anyone else think that in the last line, its "her room has gotten colder since she let that damn boy..." instead of "And her room has gotten colder since she left that damn door open" and it would make sense because its like, her life as gotten worse and worse since she let that boy into her life.
