Out in the starless darkness
the city smiled on itself.
Traffic signals switched from green to red;
I searched your body for evidence,
under a dogwood canopy.
Your hand in mine, frozen in time.
Who would've guessed life as we knew was ending?
So don't cry, we'll be alright.
Once I get you cleaned up, babe, we'll run away.

But if you die before I wake,
have my heart, it's yours to take.
A sacrifice for our sake;
I'd give my whole life for you any day.

Daylight drew the sickness,
I brush the bangs from your face
while watching your eyes turn from green to red.
Back in our old apartment,
collecting dust on a shelf,
the memories of you and me
incinerate from under ?
So don't cry, we'll be alright.
Once we get you picked up, babe, we'll run away.

But if you die before I wake,
have my heart, it's yours to take.
A sacrifice for our sake;
I'd give my whole life for you any day.

Love of mine,
call out if it eats you from the inside.
Out of time,
but be sure I'll be all yours, I'll be on the side.
Sometimes, it's harder to stay alive.

But if you die before I wake,
have my heart, it's yours to take.
A sacrifice for our sake;
I'd give my whole life for you any day.
