I look at you walk through the door
it never has felt like this before
An ocean has pulled you away and begging has never made anyone stay
I look at this room full of shame
and I'm walking around and repeating your name
I should have kept you in chains
but you've disappeared in the down pouring rain

Shouldn't my jacket be straight?

Three weeks has gone plus a day
and the hem on my mind is starting to fray
these blankets just won't keep me warm
and my friend the sun has left with the storm
I'm singing these words again and your body lies over the ocean
your body lies over the sea
bring back your body to me
to me

Shouldn't my jacket be straight?


at least for the days when you're pulling away
Shouldn't your arrows be bent
when they stick in my chest and I can't pull them out
You just don't know how it feels
to be under your wheels while you're driving away
My head has taken a spin
and you're under my skin and I can't get you out

Shouldn't my jacket be straight?
