lyrics

I drowned myself in
the letter you left and a bottle,
Telling myself it would make life
Feel less numb.
Pushing towards connection,
The alcohol on my breath,
Rushes to my touch,
My fingers feel drunk.
Stumbling come homes under my breath.

And you told me that one day I'd be okay
and that one day I could find my place
But I can't speak for the fact that I'll stay.
I don't feel safe staying this way.

I made my own wings,
I'm getting closer to falling down.
The sun beats down on my back
And I'd like to fall back to the ground.
Stick another pill between my teeth
Stay up staring at the ceiling
And break into pieces until I feel relief.

The words crashed on my ears like the sea on a postcard sent by someone who loves you but not enough to come back home.

Why did you have to leave?
Why do I have to let every month out into the bathroom sink?
Why did you have to leave?
Why do I have to let every month out into the bathroom sink?
Why do I shake
Why do I lie awake
Why do I
why do i
why do i
why do i have to drink myself to sleep every night?

This blood was meant to be coughed up.
Call me a medic for all your cuts.
I'm sorry I can't be the man I should.
We were beauty but not love.

I'll break into pieces for you.
Call me a medic for this blood.

I'm sorry I can't be the man I should.
We were beauty but not love.

I can't drown you out.
Goddamn these words in my head.

Patch up these holes in my lungs
We were beauty but not love.
We’re drowning each other out.
We were beauty but not love.
The weight of months is keeping you from coming back to me.
We were beauty but not love.
I can't keep my head above.
I can't breathe.
We were beauty but not love.
I can't keep my head above
We were beauty but not love.
The weight of months is keeping you from coming back to me.
We were beauty but not love.
