It's always blue and black or breaking skin,
well cover up girl, we'll finally begin.
And you breath me in so well,
in your room under the cover of this night.
We are safe; we are, as long as you whisper.
But my eye was caught by your picture.

That's hanging from your mirror,
like something you forgot.
I'll say that we couldnt sleep
just staring at the clock.
But when numbers seem to blur
and reflection is lost,
anything is love as you stare into your box.

So now we're used to the rain.
We can swim and I'll say we were never worried.
Because the floods will only bring
the coast, and Atlantic closer.
I thought I told you girl,
I thought I showed you the reason
that all I truly want is to get in your head.

And steal your imagery,
so we can both go
to your second story house.
You would never beleive this snow.
It gets so heavy on our lungs.
But it's creeping up your walls
and closing down the roads.
But I swear i'm loving while.
I swear I still will hide away from the cold.

I swear we're almost there we'll be safe inside
Down the stairs to your room where I could stay for days
The substance is over us, please don't do this love
'Cause this may never change oh but I'm still here, so they say

    General CommentI'm a Lydia fan. This is a damn good song.
    "This December" might be my favorite album of the year.

    General CommentI am curious, but is the lead male vocals the guy from The Lindsay Diaries? Maybe this is a pointless question..but I decided to ask.
    Thanks.
