The piano from the movie
Is stuck on a minor chord
Don't try and tell me something
Then say that you forget it
The porchlights turn off
But it's fine
I don't need to see your pretty face
To feel happy
All smiles when

I'm counting on you
Just for now
To say cutie things to me
Like, "Hey, nice teeth."
And you'll catch cold
By not using bow ties
To wrap your sentences

Incentive to wake at 4am
To write poems with eyeliner
Don't wake, don't wake
It's too late to fall back to sleep
Fuck lullabyes, let's harmonise
The stars on your ceiling glow

If all I did
If all I said
This is not a bruise from falling for you
This is not a bruise from falling for you
Look close, as if you care

This is not a bruise from falling for you
This is not a bruise
This is not a bruise from falling for you
This is not a bruise

We fall, we break
And take and watch us fall away
We fall, we break
And take and watch us fall away
We fall, we fall, we fall
We fall
We fall..

I'm counting on you
Just for now
To say cutie things to me
Like, "Hey, nice teeth."
And you'll catch cold
By not using bow ties
To wrap your sentences.

This is not a bruise
From falling for you
This is not a bruise.
This is not a bruise
From falling for you
From falling for you.
This is not a bruise...
