lyrics

You can't fake when it starts to show
in the way that you move around her and you know
it's not going away and you know
it's not going unless you go.

We kissed on the floor, a drunken pile of limbs,
and tore at the edges of our clothing like gifts.
And in the pauses to catch our breath,
we stared with aching recklessness.

Tonight, we swore, means nothing more than this.

Exhausted but I can't find sleep.
Eyes shut, mind racing through
the afterglow of another weekend
acting out the false gods
we've come to believe in.

You can't fake when it starts to show
in the way that you move around her and you know
it's not going away and you know
it's not going unless you go.

I race to the door but pause before I open.
It's been two weeks, we've barely spoken.
I needed some way to get you alone
To ask what's up though I already know.

Tonight, we swore, means nothing more than this.

Exhausted but I can't find sleep.
Eyes shut, mind racing through
the afterglow of another weekend
acting out the false gods
we've come to believe in.

You can't fake when it starts to show
in the way that you move around her and you know
it's not going away and you know
it's not going unless you go.

Tonight, we swore, means nothing more than this,
As one dream died that night behind our eyelids.
And the walls fall in perfect silence.
The walls fall in perfect silence.
The walls fall in perfect silence.
