My lips are shields to my tongue and her tale
Every tooth is a letterbox
One for the end of every driveway of every place that I've ever called home
Now all my teeth are gone, and my only driveway is laid between the two arms that don't ache to be held

It's just you, me, them, and all this complicated kindness
You can force yrself to love, but don't tell yrself they'll stay
So keep yr eyes closed and do yr best to hide it
Lover, love them, then walk away
I've seen yr dancing hips get hip and dance with mine
I've seen yr stage school legs staging a walkout with yr 'I do' eyes
Oh, 'I do' eyes, oh, 'I do' eyes

Inside the mark that rests in these cold, cold hands is a mirror
As empty as peers in November seaside towns
Black coffee spells, nothing this time around
But I've never been so alone, and when I hold you it feels like home

It's just you, me, them, and all this complicated kindness
You can force yrself to love, but don't tell yrself they'll stay
So keep yr eyes closed and do yr best to hide it
Lover, love them, then walk away
I've seen yr dancing hips get hip and dance with mine
I've seen yr stage school legs staging a walkout with yr 'I do' eyes
Oh, 'I do' eyes, oh, 'I do' eyes
