All that’s between us and the sky
Fire glass and dusty blinds
So I scrawled your name, then mine
Just to see them side by side

Your boss is pulling out his hair
If he only knew why you’re not there
Bells and hammers break the waking day
As sobriety carries its chains

And you look into my eyes
And say you’re through with that disguise
As it’s strewn beside your bed
You vow to never pull it on again

I thought I’d be a hermit forever
Can it still be so?
As long as we are together

You’re like fire to pine
All the world’s behind those eyes
As clocks quake and crumble in the piles
Think we’re the only ones left alive

All rules seem strange and false
Each hour gone, out there seems more wrong
I’m afraid we’ve been inside for days
And our fear, sobriety awaits

As I look into your eyes
I wonder when we last dined on engagements
We never made, just threw them away
With one embrace
All these rules have somehow passed
All the cracks in the window glass
I’ll kiss it off
The drunk off three nights
So savor these firework shards while they fly
All these firework shards while they cry

I thought I’d be a hermit forever
Can it still be so?
For now, we are together

Thought I’d be a hermit forever
Can it still be so?
For now, we are together

    General CommentSounds like him and his girlfriend have gone on a big bender but no they're sobering up, she has to leave and they're falling apart.
