A subtle breeze wanders through the open window
It’s so deliberate that I crave this time last year
When the evening light was shimmering
And you would look so divine
I cannot tell you why…
I want the ground to swallow me whole
I don’t want to die but I don’t want to grow old
You, you didn’t mean to be so severe
But I cannot shake this drug
It’s clear to me now

It’s just like my father said one night
I’ve got to get out of my own head sometimes
I wrap myself in thoughts until they smother me
I convince myself the good things are the enemy
Now the nights just linger pointlessly
And all I really want is your company

But now you’re barely talking to me
And I wonder if we were ever close at all
I didn’t want you to move away
I’m sorry that I couldn’t cope
But you know that the distance made me frail
I needed your touch, your scent, your kiss, your smile,
And that beautiful look in your eyes

It’s just like my father said one night
I’ve got to get out of my own head sometimes
I wrap myself in thoughts until they smother me
I convince myself the good things are the enemy
Now the nights just linger pointlessly
And all I really want is your company
