lyrics

Shotgun, backlit by the streetlamp
Drizzle on the windshield; now you glow like an
Eclipse, look directly at me
Now whose eyes are burning? Probably mine

I kept you in my arms
You kept me at arms length
Sounding off alarms
Guilty and quiet

No words could ever say everything your eyes did
No words could ever say everything you wanted to say
I heard what you never said

Water on the bedside table
On a beach of sugar, bittersweet like the
Drinks that don't help me forget you
Oh, I need more sugar to mask the taste

You haven't been here in so long
But I am still breathing you
Stringing me along
I'll take it, I'll take it

No words could ever say everything your eyes did
No words could ever say everything you wanted to say
I heard what you never said

I swear I never asked for a goddamn shooting star
But you know i'm not gonna deny that's where we are
Just burning up, like sand in a suburban sky
Why?

No words could ever say everything your eyes did

Stop calling it off
Stop calling me
Stop crying wolf
Stop crying shame on me

Stop letting it go
Stop getting to me
Stop getting me off
'Cause I can't breathe

I can't breathe
I can't breathe

I heard what you wanted to say
Needless to say
