[11_10_09]

it’s been too long since i tried
it’s been so long since i felt alive
side by side under the moon
over night lights
sing to me and you
it’s your cue to run somewhere and hide
a swallowed key locks scars of disbelief
while i carve my silhouette into fake photographs
bleeding out yesterday

so do i let you sink down to the bottom
and let you find for yourself that it’s rotten
oh, how many times can i stand aside and watch you dive into the deep
asleep, so sweet

i promise i won’t let you down
if you promise to try and stick around
but i think there’s one thing that you should know
that you can save yourself but still lose your soul
so say goodnight, sweet child
so i can cry all alone
just turn around and run away towards that fake tomorrow light
it’s as real and dim as today

so do i let you sink down to the bottom
and let you find for yourself that it’s rotten
oh, how many times can i stand aside and watch you dive into the deep
asleep, too deep to wake
dear child
