lyrics

this crater will patch itself. i'd rather die here. then spend my life saying maybe. but maybe we could pretend. and nervously steal glances. from across this room. i guess I should've seen this coming a long way off. but still. what if I told you. that all those things I've said meant nothing. and the quiet whispers in my head. are the best of me. but I don't know if you should do this to yourself. but this grey will do for now. its so perfect. i can feel it. in the back of my mind. and how come I remember your name. when I can't remember mine. and I could write for days. lie through my teeth. bring you to tears. and feel fine. like this won't happen. like we both won't end up alone. lately I've dreamt in foreign languages. i've looked up and seen red. its an unfamiliar ceiling. and I guess it kind of feels like home to me. i only fool myself. maybe theres hope. maybe we won't. run this into the ground
