lyrics

I saw it all in slow-motion
and felt it in the pressure of your thighs
straining past the one they clutch every night
towards the one that maybe someday, maybe tonight
so I wandered home alone
made up my mourning bed
counted all the future dead
and awoke to only sweetness

and at a party up north
where the music shakes my drink and the happy happy people
talk to happy you
and I'm going crazy, crazy in my head
tearing pictures off the walls and spitting poison
I watch you like an airplane taking off
like the negative that light leaves on closed eyes
I wanna take you home and tie you to the bed
and that's exactly what we do
and we barely sleep
and your body keeps
all the bad things away

the golden age is yet to come
I still believe it to be true
I mean, I think I still believe it to be true
I mean, I hope there's still a chance I'll be made new

I still hold out a hope
that if I can put everything that's wrong with me into a song
and play the final chord
I will be made new
slough it off like old skin
send the demons scattering
and be the one you love again
be the one you love again.
