i don't want to write another melodramatic line
i don't want to write anything short of pantomimes
'cause i've been feeling stressed without you being here
'cause i've been feeling stressed without your voice up in my ear
without your voice up in my ear
your voice up in my ear
without your voice up in my ear
your voice up in my ear
without your voice up in my ear
your voice up in my ear
without your voice up in my ear

fingers on lips just for a second now,
why are you falling apart?
whispers can be solved by telephone wires and
conversations about matters of the heart
matters of the heart
matters of the heart
matters of the heart
matters of the heart
matters of the heart
matters of the heart [echo]
matters of the heart

i made a mistake, i messed you about
didn't know what to do
to try to figure out
what makes you happy
what makes you feel okay
when you're staring at me, tell me what does this face say

should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye
should've said goodbye

it's not my place to be missed or fix you
just pull yourself together
this can all be solved by sitting back and apologising for
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart
breaking your own heart

i'm sawing further
'cause ignorance is more than bliss
when you get into old habits
there's beauty in everything
can you feel it when you cry?

oh no, i'm sick of crying over you
now

so why do i want to recover?

violence and chemicals, maybe

is it the desire to get knocked down again that keeps us going?

you write the lines of some more eloquent

you take your bright eyes and elliott smith
i'll take my simple melodies
seek out the daylight
