Here are your anchors, take your promises and bets
Here's your fever, yours to accentuate with cigarettes
Will I watch your smile go up in smoke, or did your trials evoke
A half a mind to turn it all around?
I knew you'd end up letting me down

And in your days spent smiling on the coast
Did the ocean drink up all your sense and the things you'd come to love the most?
Have you drowned all of your ailments, have you shaken off your ghosts?
With that quick adhesive heart, I can't imagine why anyone would get too close

Here's your fever, I haven't thought of you in days
Here's your alcohol, yours to drink or yours to waste
Can I make my ears refuse your mouth, or am I lying to myself?
I've got half a mind to turn it all around
I'm tired of feeling like I always let you down

And in your days spent smiling on the coast
Did the ocean drink up all your sense and the things you'd come to love the most?
Have you drowned all of your ailments, have you shaken off your ghosts?
With that quick adhesive heart, I can't imagine why anyone would get too close

So find a nice lush to keep your bed warm
He won't ask where you've been, he'll just weather the storm
Summer's breath is imminent, it's crawling through your veins
It's building walls and burning bridges, and I'm headed back the way I came
