I feel innocent
I know I look different
I don't want the world to know why
I'm sharp as a chisel chipping away stone
Sculpt you in my imagination like it's time I own
Don't want to say goodbye

Maybe it's the way you laugh as loud as leather
Maybe it's the day without you seems so cold
Maybe it's the fraying of your only sweater
The one you gave to me when I was too tired to go home
Maybe it's the time that bleeds into tomorrow
Maybe it's the line you're not too proud to say
Maybe it's the gray behind the smile you borrow
Baby, don't you cry, I promise I will, I promise I will stay

And I haven't had this much fun
Since I discovered I could resent someone
For hurting me but this is like the opposite of sin
And I don't think that I could be bitter again
Even if I were to feel that much pain
'Cause you see through me like cellophane

Maybe it's the way you laugh as loud as leather
Maybe it's the day without you seems so cold
Maybe it's the fraying of your only sweater
The one you gave to me when I was too tired to go home
Maybe it's the time that bleeds into tomorrow
Maybe it's the line you're not too proud to say
Maybe it's the gray behind the smile you borrow
Baby, don't you cry, I promise I will, I promise I will stay

And I haven't wanted someone with so much joy
Behind the desire to not play games
And this feels so much like the synonym of truth
And I don't know why
But I think I'm brave like you

Maybe it's the way you laugh as loud as leather
Maybe it's the day without you seems so cold
Maybe it's the fraying of your only sweater
The one you gave to me when I was too tired to go home
Maybe it's the time that bleeds into tomorrow
Maybe it's the line you're not too proud to say
Maybe it's the gray behind the smile you borrow
Baby, don't you cry, I promise I will, I promise I will stay
