lyrics

So we chose not to speak the taxi man and I
or I just didn't hear him talk as my mind shouted guilt
and the reason felt weightless… like
blisters in the sun
defeated and faithless

few nights were wasted in the same shade of grey
a few words misplaced that have pushed you away
but if I spoke now with a deadlock inside
maybe you'd have answers and know the reason why

I stared at the meter
I stared at the meter
and the meter stared back at me, oh oh

It’s raining so… I might as well drench my words
Puddles are a mirror, they won’t save me from this curse
I hear the silent chant whisper, it buzzes terror to my ears
I must’ve shivered love, why else would you be here?

Is this the chance I wanted, the salvation of the poor
soul who’s forgotten he’s been a ticking bomb all along
I wanted to play fiddle with your curls
Instead I grabbed you in the middle
Pulled the hair out of its core

I stared at the meter
I stared at the meter
Until meter flooded over me

if I sang out of tune would you listen to me
would this be one of those things
where everybody is pointing at me
at the campfire

(she) said bring out your guitar
and sing out of key
you know, that’s how it used to be, oh yeah

ooohoo
through the fire and into flames
you carry it, see?
It’s everything you see
