You were shaking like a leaf
clinging hard to a sleepy branch
and holding on for your dear life.

Well if you fall, then you'll fall in
and you'll spiral randomly
no way to know where you're gonna land.

and all the plans that you have made
they are a million miles away
waiting for you to come home

and there's no breeze i've ever felt,
no blow that I've been dealt,
that could carry us back again

but you can't stay here
any more than I can
any more than a hot minute or a heavy second or a half-life
the cracked static of a geiger counter

You remind me of a place
the kind of world beneath your feet
that disappears when you go there

then you're trapped under the street
drinking light through a sewer grate
like you were born on a leap year

but you can't stay here
any more than I can
any more than a hot minute or a heavy second or a half-life
the cracked static of a geiger counter

it's getting louder and louder

but you can't stay here
any more than I can
any more than a hot minute or a heavy second or a half-life
the cracked static of a geiger counter

when you wilt I will love you
and we will mix when you crumble
we'll disintegrate and blow away
