lyrics

You’re a part of me
I don’t know what I would be
If you abandoned me I think I’d
Do something terrible

I’m a part of you
You must feel this way too
Still, there’s some disconnect
I can’t keep what I say in check

Suddenly amorous feelings transform into
Why can’t I have you right now?

I’m so drawn to you
Your sweetness cuts me right through
I’m damned. It’s bleak. It’s dark
Someday you’ll rip out my still beating heart

Then all at once I feel instantly better
I hear you outside on the porch

When our duplicate gazes align
I can’t bear it

When you’re closing your hand around mine
I can’t bear it

When you’re warming my cheek with your breath
I can’t bear it

It’s scaring me half to death
And I can’t bear it

When the change comes
I’ll go completely numb
You’ll think, “I’ve never seen him look
So vulnerable before”

I’ll ask, “Why” and “how”
“Why are you doing this now?”
“I built myself around you
Now all of it is just a souvenir.”

Time itself will stop
You could hear a pin drop
But all I hear is the sound of the air
deflating out of me

I’ll watch with sparkling eyes
As the light in yours dies
Already I’ve become
A fond and fading memory
