lyrics

In the dead of night, my back to the wall, myself on the ground. The house heard me breathe, "someone please bring you home."
I still hear you leaving loud and clear.
I thought it’d go away without you here.

The click of the door behind, the slide of the lock, the hit of your step slip- slipping away down the stairs, away from the porch.
I need this, I need to leave.
I need this like air in my lungs when I’m starting to drown.
Oh God, I’m starting to drown.

You are the moon to the sea,
Please stop pulling away from me.
I'm sorry I'm not the man I should be.

This drink tastes like the first time I told you I love you,
But my lips don't have to move that way anymore.
What do I say now?
What do I say now?
I know, I fucked up.

You are the moon to the sea,
Please stop pulling away from me.
I'm sorry I'm not the man I should be.

Choke down the oceans you are containing,
Every wave threw everything back at me.
Maybe these words were supposed to be coughed up.
Maybe I was meant to taste my own blood.
Maybe these words were supposed to be.
I'm drowning me.

You are the moon to the sea,
Please stop pulling away from me.
I'm sorry I'm not the man I should be.

I wish bodies didn't mend so crookedly.
Please stop pulling away from me.
I'm drowning me.
I can't tell the shore from the ocean.
I can't tell the shore from the ocean.
