If parting is such sweet sorrow,
Why does this still taste bitter
Against my lips?
Electric words crackle,
Like poison on the wire.

If parting is such sweet sorrow,
Why does this still taste bitter?
(Or is it a blessing in disguise)

A breath and it's gone,
But it lingers.
Reminds me to feel something.
A breath and it's gone but it lingers,
Reminds me to feel..

We tread so carefully between
Every piece and promises
That matter most
As the sun leaves the gulf
Colous saturate our ghosts
Shadows faded
Once kept me contained
Now seem far away

Take my hand, my everything
Take this heart and soul to keep
Choke hold and don't let me breathe
Choke hold and don't let me..
