I am bleeding through
writing songs for you
if I could draw what I felt
then I would draw for you
I'm just a boy letting go of his heart
because the days are like knives
and the knives are so sharp
one more kiss - so I don't forget
and then I'll open my arms
to embrace the regret
fragile dreams - fistfight kings
slowdance queens...
oh pick me please
sending "get well" cards to former stars
'cause I know how it feels
to have fallen so far
talentless yet nothingless
then hopelessly in awe of you
I want nostalgia forever
of we throw this life away
will we ever have to live again?
say "no" and I'm all yours
say "yes" and I'll still fucking pull
tell the boys I'll see them soon
your lips were the softest yet
north east south and west
I gave you my very best
I left my heart in yesterday
(remember how it used to be)
I shot myself full of memory
(before the world turn on me?)
forget what you know
forget that it hurts
the "new days" are coming
they're getting fucking worse
forget what you know
forget that it hurts
the "new days" are coming
they're getting fucking worse
I am bleeding through
writing songs for you
I am bleeding through
fucking writing songs for you
they're all for you.

    General CommentI always thought it was
    "talentless, yet nothing less than hopelessly in awe of you."
    I prefer it that way, it makes more sense.
