I tried to leave you in a movie, but you walked right through me
I should have left you in a book, went and took another look
You can put it on the shelf, if you wanna stop the story
I tried to leave you in a movie; I swore the film it wasn’t for me

My boy Mateo, it isn’t the air
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
I’ll take the bullet that they left in your head
Show me where the shooter lives, and shoot me instead

It was raining, and the lightening cracked through your head
It’s like the night it understood you, and said the things you never said
It was crazy when the fireworks lit up the dark
Like somebody up in heaven was taking pictures of your heart

My boy Mateo, it isn’t the air
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
I’ll take the bullet that they left in your head
Show me where the shooter lives, and shoot me instead

When you fell, did the gravity hold you?
Did she pull you in, like a long-lost friend?
And when you fell, did the good Lord hold you?
Whisper in your ear, “It isn’t the air”?
It isn’t the air
It isn’t the air

I tried to leave you in a movie, but you walked right through me
I should have left you in a book, went and took another look
You can put it on the shelf, if you wanna stop the story
I tried to leave you in a movie; I swore the film it wasn’t for me

My boy Mateo, it isn’t the air
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
I’ll take the bullet that they left in your head
Show me where the shooter lives, and shoot me instead
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
My beautiful friend
Come back and haunt me now
