The sky was hung with brazen stars, like Christmas lights on trees.
You hung out too till the morning came, till the sun fell in on me.
All of our highs can't erase our lows in these darkening days.
Ferris wheels and night time bars, we live on separate times.
Our peers around us grew up so dull, that we left our lives behind.
The weight of your crystal heart. The train ride that sets us apart.
And I held you for a moment lost, "like tears in the rain".
You slept upon the sofa, and I never slept again.
You're making out in your fathers car, we're making out i'm fine.
I saw you out at the show last night I just ignore you all the time.
Mary look what they've done to me.
This world has turned on me and now I drink the life I taste.
The cracks in the walls disappear.
The days turn to weeks, turn to years.
Well my mind goes blank and my eyes roll back, when i'm sober I don't know what to say.
I'll text you miserable things when I'm out drinking and then lay cringing all the following day.
I want to disappear when we end up hear, conversation just becomes such an ache.
We're only vulnerable to those who approach us until they realise there's no heart to break.
