Can't breathe
Can't sleep
And words are too big for my head
Some words shouldn't even be said

His eyes
His speech
Still rolling around in my bed
Like a ghost waking up from the dead
And it's hard to let go
And it's hard not to show
The fumbling beat of a heart
Repeating itself in the dark

Still laugh
Still dream
I'm bursting apart at the seam
Of whatever I hoped it would be
Little bird on the wire
Little bird from the fire
I'm circling back where you are
Repeating, no matter how far

Then time speaks
Through the shuffling feet
And the cold heat
In the soul

Can't breathe
Can't sleep
And words are too big for my head
Some words they should never be said
And it's hard to let go
And it's hard not to show
The fumbling beat of a heart
Repeating itself in the dark

Ooh and heart is
What you can't give
But you just did
Don't you know?

Can't breathe
Can't sleep
And words are too big for my head
Some words they should never be said
And it's hard to let go

Can't breathe...
