I can't stand to see your eyes when they're aiming at the floor,
But the worst is knowing I'm the reason for your bitter heart.
And with my head in my hands, I'm thinking of the things I've done so wrong
Though it's what I deserve, never take the melody from my song.

'Cause you're a lullaby playing through the tragedy
That I listen for to brighten up the dark
That's been romancing and keeping us asleep

So now the quiet came around, found a soul muted deeper than its own
And all his luggage piled in the room, he knows he's gonna have to stay for a while
And with my feet on the ground, I wonder how I'm gonna escape from the flood
Though it's what I deserve, I never want to have to decide to give up

'Cause you're a lullaby playing through the tragedy
That I listen for to brighten up the dark
That's been romancing and keeping us asleep
While everything is wandering away from our reality

    General Commenti understand this song completely and it's one of my favorite.
    so basically the girl made a mistake and her boyfriend is kind of bitter over it and kind of being... like ice? and just bitter. totally understand, going through the same thing here...
    and the whole song is about the situation. this song is really beautiful.
