Lying on my back I feel you breathing
Sucking down the ghosts into your sleep
There's something in your spine that makes me nervous
Black that swells between us grows more deep
Cut the world in chords
Making melodies from words
And I'm confused again
Take all this abuse cause I ain't got much to lose

It's a starry starry night out here on hope street
But hope gives way to hunger when you're poor
With pockets full of promises and poems
I know that you ain't worth much anymore
Spoke in broken time
Twisted rythyms, crooked rhymes
And I'm confused again
Paint my world in blue
Cause I've never liked to lose

I don't think I want to spend another night with you
I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to
I don't think I want to spend another night with you
I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to

Standing in the half light of the morning
I watch the shadows lace across my shoes
There's something in your voice that makes me nervous
If I can tell we're lying, why can't you?
The song that's in my head
Is playing backwards in this bed
And I'm confused again
Seems like I have to choose
It feels like either way I lose

Cause I don't think I want to spend another night with you
Well I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to
I don't think I want to spend another night with you
I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to

Spoke in broken time
Crooked rythyms, twisted rhymes
And I'm confused again
Either way I choose
I know I'm gonna lose

I don't think I want to spend another night with you
I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to
I don't think I want to spend another night with you
I don't think I want to spend another day
Feeling the way you leave me to
(I don't think I want to spend another night with you)
Feeling the way you leave me to
(I don't think I want to spend another night with you)
Feeling the way you leave me to
(I don't think I want to spend another night with you)
Feeling the way you leave me to
(I don't think I want to spend another night with you)
Come On!

    General CommentThis is such a clutch song. It is pretty self explanitory. He is confused by a relationship he has with a girl. In the past they werent always that honest with each other,and although they both know that the relationship will never go anywhere because of what they did or said in the past,they will not admit it to themselves. Good song....
