this wasnt supposed to be a test
of will or years of patience
but when you opened your mouth
and still nothing came out
I was speechless

youve got a million things upon your nightstand
oh I hate them
but it was in the pill
I am swallowing still
'cause I messed up, yeah I messed up

keep the lights on so I can remember why I came
sometimes I doubt you my murmuring darling

in the bloodlines, in the straight lines
on the sidewalk in the palm of your hand
I mumble through
and you talk through me and its hard

the lights, the lights they might
have brought me to the rocks here, where I am sinking
but its all in the pill I am trying to cough up
'cause I messed up, yeah I messed up

keep the lights on so I can remember why I came
sometimes I doubt you my murmuring darling

    General Commentthis wasnt supposed to be a test
    of will or years of patience
    but when you opened your mouth
    and still nothing came out
    I was speechless

    you've got a million things upon your nightstand
    oh I hate them
    but it was in the pill
    I am swallowing still
    'cause I messed up, yeah I messed up

    so keep the lights on so I can remember why I came
    sometimes I doubt you my murmuring darling

    in the bloodlines, in the straight lines
    on the sidewalks in the palm of your hand
    I mumble through
    and you talk through me and it's hard

    the lights, the lights they might
    have brought me to the rocks here, where I am sinking
    and its all in the pill I am trying to cough up
    'cause I messed up, yeah I messed up

    so keep the lights on so I can remember why I came
    sometimes I doubt you my murmuring darling
