Gliding through a field of ice, hands too frozen to climb, a beautiful mess of a shipwreck, diving through confusion to the parts that still make sense, all the pieces spell out your name, but what I wouldn't give to see your face The reflection in the water enough to pull me under, wound around you tighter than a spring, the only life line keeping me from floating out to sea It gets harder to remember what I've already memorized, gave them a smile, but saved you my eyes, digging through the debris to find what's left of me because I get lost in your look, now you're all I can see Too deeply involved to ever get out, but the ocean deadens sound If I go down, then we go down together, because I remember what you said when the horns were blowing, push through the storm, until it gets better, and then keep going.
I fall in love with him over and over again everyday It's not a choice I make, it's the way I'm made My love would have killed a weaker man.
On Sunday, we do nothing with no time to lose; Monday I chase away your blues; By Tuesday, I'm drunk on the pain of missing you; I don't want to talk about Wednesdays too soon; Now, I know on Thursday you've got something to do, and Friday I wait by the mailbox for you, so Saturday is always something new.
He's seen me at my worst, knows me better than any book, hands-down dragged me head-first, speechless when he gives me that look We were always leaving, catching each other out the door, never saw him coming, I crashed right through the floor, yes, no, and maybes, and have I seen you here before Images waiting on words with nothing left to say, we were staring at each other, blank looks on our face, unreadable expressions, we couldn't turn away A landscape of us when the words won't come, an infinity when the limits of love are none.
Saying goodbye has only broken my heart about a dozen times so I started saying goodnight Let's do it again turned into asking for one more time, begging for another ride He was teaching me how to fly, I was learning how to cry I remember waking up and taking off, wondering if I could have ever held him enough.
This is how an angel cries, walking home under neon lights, on the corner, a man screams into his phone, whatever it takes, just bring her home Frost on all the windows, shops closing up for the night, still a long way to go, but she's not going home tonight This is how an angel cries, walking home under neon lights, on the corner, a girl in all the wrong clothes screams into her phone, please pick me up and take me home And it's a travelled road if you've been here before, all the freedom in the world with no place to go, running until you run out of road.
His face between my hands, asking for one more dance, hoping this night won't end Wandering through a reverie, absorbed by the revelry, lost in his eyes again, the room turns as we spin The park at dusk, his arm, my touch, the song in my soul, the way breathing comes so natural in solitude and peace, my heart, his sleeve, dazed by the memories Lamps lit by one spark, at home before dark, long drives and small talk, daylight fading into night stars Dandelion wishes around bonfires, kissing in the kitchen and long-held desires, the truth comes out between my lips, I am in love, that's what this is...
Staring into a black abyss, scared to fall, still jumping in, never thought to dream of this, feel him move when gravity shifts He was the one exception, standing on a precipice, every bone in my body trying to hold back the wind Unraveling threads from the web I weaved, walking along the edge on the Cliffs of Insanity Hiding behind pretty words with a face that would terrify the world Smothered the flames of infatuation, took the journey before I had a destination Eviscerated every thought, every memory from my mind suggesting an alternate ending Hanging off the side of a precipice, feel the rock crumbling, slipping right through my fingertips.
Sleepy eyes looking for yours in a crowded room, making the most out of what we've been handed, reaching for low hanging fruit back-to-back, then in each other's faces, but we're still standing, your name right next to mine, if the walls could talk and the hills had eyes hearts still still breaking, cracking under the strain, hearts worth saving while we remain the same; new towns, new places, a familiar refrain: when everything changes, we remain the same.
Everything has changed, even though my hands still shake, remember it all like it was yesterday no ceiling to stop us, flying limitless, needing space to breathe so we wouldn't suffocate, memories washed away with the rain Explosive emotions ready to detonate; every second in heaven a lifetime on Earth; ordinary words leaving scars where they burned branded on my naked soul the games we played and the high we chased: falling fast, falling hard, falling too late Quelling a desert thirst, an endless search to remain as this when all we've ever known was limitless.
