Your face is blank
Your fate has changed
Promises made
Nothing to gain

I want you to know, I'll take you with me

Why do our smiles miss so many teeth?
Hidden behind split lips and rosy cheeks
And I play the patented hopeful role
Grasping at every chance
True romance in a friendship setting
And then falling into the idea that everyone has forgotten
Everything that everyone else has done for them

Hands tight all grasping in space
Life drains away
Promises made
And we're dying
And we're dying in this state

Your face is blank

All new worlds that we've flown
I'll hold too long

And I'll bring us back from that new place
Realizing that I could never dish this out
See, I could never drink the tears from the cheeks of the young
And then be left
Left to pray
Pray for a decent thought
Or a phone call on a random Sunday

Hands tight all grasping in space
Life drains away
Promises made
And we're dying
And we're dying in this state

Your face is blank
Your fate has changed
Promises made
I've got nothing to fucking gain

And I'll take us
We'll find ourselves in a new place
And then they'll wake up
And find our beds all empty

Hands tight all grasping in space
Life drains away
The promises made
And we're dying
And we're dying in this place

I want you to know...
I want you to know...
I want you

    General CommentThis seems to be about a friend of the writer's that he is in love with who does not share the same feelings. This friend is also in a bad situation, which by association, the writer shares. This is about the writer's desire to save them from their troubles and be more than a friend, a lover.
