can we
start this conversation over?
you are looking over
my shoulder to impress someone tonight.

i'm dying from only
listening to you,
and though i smile,
it's just because i want to like you.

the truth is, i'm overwhelming you
with lies and though i try,
there's no honesty in me tonight.

can we
start the introductions over?
you are looking over my shoulder
to impress someone tonight.

i'm dying from only
listening to you,
and though i'm quiet,
i'll find my voice tonight.

i know that i can be cold sometimes.
there was snow on the ground
when i was born,
and the stars didn't shine
that night.

take me out, take me out,
and i'll melt, i'll melt.


all the way down.

    and it is all very empty.
