This bed’s too small you’ll have to sleep
On top of me, be my sheet
We made out and swapped some sorrow
How was I to know it was a time bomb I swallowed?
We’ll have just one before you’re gone
And lose all the lines we’ve settled on
All these friends are just on borrow
They’ve got lovers to wake to tomorrow

I’m making it, but it’s so damn hard

I’ve been finding
Love is lightning
There’s no telling
Who it’s striking

So I’ll stay in basement corners with candles and wait it out
I am an open book my pages have been torn out
I crumble up to feed the fire the lightning’s ignited in you tonight

I miss the way I fit with you
Sleep comes when I don’t think it though
I feel lost with every morning
The way my head feels I should take as a warning
But I’ll have just one now you are gone
It’s the safest stuff I could be on
All these friends are just on borrow
They’ve got lovers to wake to tomorrow and

I’m making it, but it’s so damn hard

I’ve been finding
Love is burning
There’s no telling
Who it’s hurting

So I’ll stay in basement corners with candles and wait it out
I am an open book my pages have been torn out
I crumble up to feed the fire the lightning’s ignited in you tonight
I’m so messed up I’ve been wired to give out just enough to hook you up
That’s not right, it’s a temporary fix tonight
And I’m talking to you oh oh yes I’m talking to you oh

This bed it never felt so cold. The morning you left I felt so old.
So I’ll stay in basement corners with candles and wait it out
I am an open book my pages have been torn out
So I’ll stay in basement corners with candles and wait it out
I am an open book my pages have been torn out
I crumble up to feed the fire the lightning’s ignited in you tonight
I’m so messed up I’ve been wired to give out just enough to hook you up
And that’s not right, it’s a temporary fix tonight
And I’m talking to you oh oh yes I’m talking to you oh
I gonna find, a way to be, a way to be alright

I’m talking to you oh oh yes I’m
