I woke up in a mist
checked my mail, made a list
and pretended you didn’t exist
I’m a tightly-clenched fist
of loose words from loose lips
and a loose disregard for your kiss

the sun it rains down and it makes our young bodies grow older
when night comes I’ll miss it but for now I just wish it were colder.

so don’t tell me you love me if you don’t want to leave broken
I’ll just sit back and laugh and I’ll pretend you were joking
we can stay on your bed and let it go to our heads
but in the morning we’ll both be alone
just like yesterday again

when I look in the mirror
I confront my worst fears
so I don’t often look in the mirror
I don’t want what I’ll find
in your mind or in mine
but your body’s just fine when it’s here

the sun it rains down and it makes our young bodies grow older
when night comes I’ll miss it but for now I just wish it were colder

so don’t tell me you love me if you don’t want to leave broken
I’ll just sit back and laugh and pretend you were joking
we can stay on your bed and let it go to our heads
but in the morning we’ll both be alone
just like yesterday again
