I met a boy with a broken jaw
He said his father liked him better with it
I asked to walk him home through the night
He said he had something better to do

I'm just a boy with nothing left to lose
And to gain I have everything but you
So I'll walk home through the blistering cold
Just to make sure I still feel alone

You wrapped your arms so tightly around my neck
I thought I died, my mind was still a wreck
You said it will be okay up until the end
So I turned away and I left for home

Haven't slept for days, no, I've been up
On my mind's the night we broke it off
I haven't stopped to breathe nor sleep nor eat
I just sit and wait by the phone so I can see
The point in being alone anymore

It's just too much to handle
I need a shoulder to lay my head on
And spill my guts through your grapevine

My bags are at the bottom of the stairs
I am moving far and abroad
To get away from what keeps us apart
The distance will bring us a new life

I am back, it's been over six months
We have grown, our hinges have grown rust
It's an awkward hello in the least
So we sit on the floor and we play with our feet

We drink a little and we talk a little less
The smile on your face is telling me what need to know through all this time
So I'll sit on the floor till you pass a sigh

We watch it rise and we watch it fall
Your arms creeping into the small
We are falling into the pattern
All over again

See that boy with a broken jaw?
He's healed
He offers me some company home
We sit and talk for a while but I am gone
I am sitting on your floor once again
