lyrics

Save me from my wildest dreams
For wild is not what I need
Give me walls and a ceiling and fill me with nice things
And call me home

If this is all there is then I’m glad
And it feels good to be glad about that
Take a walk, air your skin, let me get settled in
Write my name on your chest in black ink

That smile said it all, pause for breath and please, pause for more
Don’t think you’re any different to the ones who never listened to us before
The corners hide the truth in here
But the walls have eyes and they know what you’re like
I’m covering my fearful ears
That conjure up the worst they could from what it is they’ll hear

We are falling apart in the backyard

It’s been years since we talked and I’m trying to remember your face
The hardwood has bowed from the weight-bearing walls we replaced
Nobody lives here anymore
And this house is condemned like the one I grew up in
At least I’ll say that we’re still friends
You’ll maybe see it differently but I won’t be there to hear it

We are falling apart in the backyard
