Fading everything to black and blue
You look a lot like you’d
Shatter in the blink of an eye
You keep sailing right on through
Every time you say you’re learning
You just look a lot like me
Pale under the blistering sky
White and red
Black and blue

You’ve been waiting a long time
You’ve been waiting a long time

To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
Fall asleep next to me
Wait for everyone to go away
And in a dimly lit
Room where you’ve got nothing to hide
Say your goodbyes
Tell yourself we’ll read
A note that says
“I’m sorry everyone
I’m tired of feeling nothing goodbye”
Wash your face
Dry your eyes

Cause you’ve been waiting a long time
You’re been waiting a long, long time

To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
But fall asleep next to me
And Have a dream I’m falling down
On my face
I Scrape my knees
I Scrape my hands until they bleed
Cause you’re fast asleep next to me
