I was the drug you were the overdose
I was a hole you were the holy ghost
Holdin me up keepin me safely at home

You were a voice i was a vulture
And it was a choice you weren't so sure
So you packed your bags and sprouted some wings of your own
You were a door tried to stay open
I was the floor hopin you'd walk back
Don't leave me baby come back home

The sound of your feet pounding the pavement
Is shaking the street
Makes these walls cave in
Please don't leave me baby come back home

I lived in this bar ever since the day you
Left me tryin hard to drink myself to death
And i never thought i would run into you here

So buy me a drink and tell me you love me
And please take me home before things get ugly
I needed your breath whisperin songs in my ear

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure the first half of the refrain is:

    "You were a door who tried to stay open
    I was the floor, hoping you'd walk back in
    Please don't leave me baby come back home"

    And the second verse is:

    "I lived in this bar ever since the day you left me
    Trying hard to drink myself to death
    And I never thought I would run into you here

    So buy me a drink and tell me you love me
    And please take me home before things get ugly
    I've needed your breath whispering songs in my ears"
