What is it, keeps me returning
To questions I ask
My paper heart has been burning
Since you threw a match

I can't quit a habit like you dear
Cold, as they say
Something about how you live here
I wanna live that way

But I don't wanna take something
That never was mine
Or fill in blank spaces
With more dotted lines
One thing I can promise
When all the smoke clears
Just look in this window
You'll find me here

I never was someone
Who knew what to say
I sank to the bottom
While you rode the waves
Why couldn't you teach me
If only you knew
How I longed for those words
How I longed for those words

But I don't wanna take something
That never was mine
Or fill in blank spaces
With more dotted lines
One thing I can promise
When all the smoke clears
Just look in this window
You'll find me here
