lyrics

I'm not ready to be truthful with you
I'll keep pretending nothing's rending all my thoughts into tattered pieces
I can't concentrate on books
i can't concentrate on anything but you
anything but you

the awful wildness of the heat that's trapped inside this chest scares me stupid
so i sit silent i write essays on my eyelids because you'll never see them
but when I finally let them go
the words will melt the fallen snow
all the fallen snow

and the trees will drink the icy water
and burst out green with sons and daughters
and under blankets of shade fill our lungs with the sweetest of air that we trade through our fluttering lips

forget the nights so close but never touching
the tv light so blue and cruel but spring will be
a small good thing
at a time like this

I've got no choice but to be truthful with you
i'll face the future with unblinking eyes and I will say

forget the nights
the tv lights
