Lock the door behind me.
Turn the light off when I leave.
Bereft of feelings growing old,
Shattered like stars encased in gold.
And we all hide.
Running like embers from a house fire,
Nowhere to run, nothing left to do.
This town has lost the shine I thought it had.
I'm losing sleep and falling fast.
Break these bones till I'm not sore.
Trade this blood for something more.
Remember me on a summer breeze,
From the stairs you watched me leave.
Are we washed in the rain?
Taste my lips, but not my name.
The morning light is not the same.
No one can fall for me.
I'm living in the long way down.
Clip my wings, I ache to rest.
I'll never lose the marks on my chest.
For what it's worth, I fucking tried.
