And here we are again
Buried in my sheets
Your fingers are whispers
Saying the softest things to every inch of my skin
And even asleep these eyes of yours Seem to keep me on my toes
They just swallow me whole
Oh and this gift you left for me
Is one to put me to sleep in such a way that
I would never want to
I would never want to wake again

I don’t ever want to
I don’t ever want to
I don’t ever want to

Cause we're so good at what we do
With our arms crossed and our fingers locked
We work like perfect puzzle pieces
Cut right and formed to fit
But it's so different when I know you've gone

So take me quietly, and i'll leave this body behind me
Oh these rhythms of mine are so inconsistent anyway
Just one gasp and i'll be gone

I would never want to
I would never want to wake again
So leave the lights off tonight
I would never want to
I would never want to wake again
So leave the lights off tonight

And we'll use this air as rope to drag myself up through my throat

I would never want to
I would never want to wake again
So leave the lights off tonight
I would never want to
I would never want to wake again
So leave the lights off tonight

I get choked up
I get so choked up anyway with any thought of you
And
I get choked up
I get so choked up anyway

Those looks you throw, they level me

    General CommentEmpire is such an amazing song because there are so many feelings that are present. To me, it feels like he's lieing next to a girl and the gilt of somthing (cheating?) is eating him up. Then when they try and talk it out the right words don't ever come up and what they are really feeling never gets said. An amaing work by therefore i am.
