baby, i know i am crazy
and it pains me to find you
spending all your time
talking me down from heights
and watching for warning signs,
looking into overcast eyes
that predict the coming storm
and beg you to keep me warm

they warn, here comes another night
of holding me while i cry until the morning
so lock the doors, draw the blinds,
bring the furniture inside
and wait for it to start pouring
'cause it's gonna come down in torrents

somehow and somewhere i found you
and i suckered you into this one-sided relationship;
it was a dirty trick, the truths i distorted
a simple bait-and-switch,
a failing circus of perforated promises

like, i am improving and it'll be worth it
like if i repeat them, they'll become honest
oh, i am improving; it'll be worth it
i am improving; it'll be worth it.

it's nice of you to wait, darling,
while i make all my mistakes
i can't say how long it will take
there's no end in sight, i'm afraid
but the kindness you've displayed
without a hint of impatience,
i pray that it infiltrates my madness
and soothes all the mayhem

the city wears rain like a veil
and i failed to meet her glance,
just the wail of an ambulance,
sails down the back of my neck,
leaves through my fingertips
everything's coming up pale,
oh, i feel my body grey.

i need perpetual motion, perpetual sound
to keep my thoughts away, okay? okay.
