i left your bed like a dream you had
when your heavy eyelids started to split
and the light shined through
between your outstretched toes and onto your forehead
i couldnt grasp a word you said
you know you talk so fast when you're nervous
as if you fear that your thoughts will escape before you push them off your lips
you said before you go
just grab a coat
the weather man says its going to snow
so just wrap a scarf around your throat and keep your heartbeat constant so you veins keep warm
keep your tiny eyes closed
keep them stuck til i get home
just pretend that you're sleeping
'cause when you wake i want to be the first thing in focus that you see
you've got a camera lens in your eye sockets but its too late because we're already developing.

sara have you decided to leave your castle of pillows, blankets, and sheets
have you tied your shoes around your feet
to keep away from the cold concrete
'cause while i spend my days away at school
i worry that you're not keeping warm
so when the last bell rings, im rushing home
cutting through the neighbor's backyard.
but you've wrapped yourself in designer jeans
like the buldge you see in the magazines
i hope your fabrics spick, and double seemed
and keeps your finger tips inside of your pockets
keep your tiny eyes closed
keep them shut til i get home
just pretend that you're sleeping
'cause when you wake i want to be
the first thing in focus that you see
you've got a camera lens in your eye sockets
but its too late because we're already developing
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i told you to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i told you to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i told to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i told you to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i told to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
its so cold out here
in new jersey
i, i, i told you to stay under covers
i told you so you would stay warm
i left your bed
like a dream you had

    General CommentI like the feel of it. It reminds me of getting goosebumps when your body feels cold and warm at the same time and I really like that feeling. Also the idea of having someone there to comfort you. I cannot stop listening to this song, its so good!
