Mainstreet's Broken
in asphalt,
two by two lights
paint the pity

Dew dops drip from
bitten lips,
open closed, see
them singing.

Each brick forged from broken hearts,
fill the tank and start the car.
I will be your northern star,
and comfort you when life gets hard.

Oh, god, this is not what I planned.
I'm wrapped up in you,
in this dying town.
Oh god, I won't do this again,
I'm accustomed to this,
I will steady your shaking hands.

You stare at me,
opal eyes.
I can tell
you're terrified.

Poisoned by the
ugly view,
But I'm here to
comfort you.

Each brick forged from broken hearts,
fill the tank and start the car.
I will be your northern star,
and comfort you when life gets hard.

Oh God, this is not what we planned.
Don't you know I'm in love with you,
Don't you know I'm in love with the things that you do?

When the paint flakes and dries,
and the fumes burn our eyes,
I'll make haste, raise the snake,
and cure whatever part of us is blind.

No this won't go to waste. (repeat)
I am Yours. (repeat)

Girl:
I couldn't sleep in that dark back seat,
there's a glow in your eyes that I can't read.
I only wish I knew what it is you think.
I only with I knew what it is you think.
