lyrics

Oh my girl you are a blossoming queen
I never understood one thing you said to me
It always seemed like you just chewed up all them words and spit ‘em out

Standing round the kitchen punching holes in my lies
I only feel good about half of the time
I always thought that it seemed like you had it figured out

You were always standing right there with your back shoving up against the wall
It ain’t exactly like the mysteries of the world flung between us
And I was always flying around chasing after some dumb bunch of dreamers
Either that or getting high on harder drugs until my face just started to grow old

But you know my love
You just start to grow old
And all of the things that I wanted to be
Just stack up like daggers inside of me
And there ain’t nothing more or less to know

Oh my girl we’re getting rid of our wings
We burnt so many bridges I know the smell of them things
It just hangs heavy like a stone stuck hard inside your mouth

And you aren’t as young or wild or bitten by dreams
But you’re pretty you’re the queen of all the broken down things
You hover there wildly between keeping it all sewn in and screaming out

You were always standing right there with your back shoving up against the wall
It ain’t exactly like the mysteries of the world flung between us
And I was always flying around chasing after some dumb bunch of dreamers
Either that or getting high on harder drugs until my face just started to get old

But you know my love
You just start to grow old
And all of the things that I wanted to be
Just stack up like daggers inside of me
And there ain’t nothing more or less to know
