They say that time is
The tragedy slowly crawling on
While oh so hastily
Shutting us down one by one

If you can, if you can't
Sleep in that bed that you've made
You should know that I feel the same
After all these days

I've stretched all the letters
So maybe you'll see it better

Close your mouth, don't let
The bad things go deep into your lungs
If I could unhinge my jaw
And swallow you whole, you know I would
For you

If you can't, if you can
Sleep in that bed that you've made
You should know that I feel the same
Love always

If you can, if you can't
Sleep in that bed that you've made
You should know that I feel the same
Love always

I've stretched all the letters
So maybe you'll see it better

If you can, if you can't
Sleep in that bed that you've made
You should know that I feel the same
Love always

    "They say that time is
    The tragedy slowly crawling on
    While oh so hastily
    Shutting us down one by one

    If you can, if you can't
    Sleep in that bed that you've made
    You should know that I feel the same
    After all these days"

    Love, falling apart is the subject.
    She's put herself in a position she can't handle, he wants her to know he can't handle it either.

    "Close your mouth, don't let
    The bad things go deep into your lungs
    If I could unhinge my jaw
    And swallow you whole, you know I would
    For you"

    He doesn't wan't her to become what they want her to be.
    He wants her to stay herself, and he tells her that If he could, he would let his life revolve around her.

    "I've stretched all the letters
    So maybe you'll see it better"

    He's tried to explain the best he could.
