The snapping sound is just my heart, my sunshine, I'll be alright
But I go too far when I play the part, my sunshine, I must confide
That there are fiery flames on the tip of my tongue, lost dancing with the devil while trying to please everyone
They float heavenly as if they had a choice, all these evil words born in the softest voice; confused as whether to melt or just to rejoice
Now I withdraw these hands, which were built to kill, to my saintly side which subverts my will,
And stare at all the glasses filled with all the discarded progress so prominently displayed on the window sill
But now I'm only in a knot from dreaming of you, lost in all these sentences which will never soothe

I don't think I can stand without your weight, my sunshine, I'll be alright
But I'm left with only a shirt to compensate, my sunshine, and it's not my size
And now I scream from the tips of my lungs, at all these slippery things in which our dreams are so tightly wrung
And now you finally flinch and shed a tear, and collapse into these seconds which now feel so near,
and expose all of these moments which were once revered, and now it all seems so, so clear
But now it stings, this we can't conceal, but now I know our tragic tongues will never heal

And now this is me looking at you,, we played love like a game, just a word we outgrew,
So now we'll bow, rest our goddamn feet, as a love is not for laughs, so watch out, we better clench our teeth
And now we'll say, maybe we'll see each other soon, and now I'll walk away, a cold wind's coming through
And now this is me looking at you you you, so tell me what are we gonna do?
