lyrics

Come up and see me angel
I think they're out to get you
I wrap my hands around your throat
It helps me hold on better
Surgeons open hearts up
So they can work their healings
But its a bloody awful mess
I think it just stopped beating

You know I'll only let you down
These heavy hearts I carry around
With me
Oh

Its such an awful question
Its such an awkward feeling
What do we tell our parents
I'm taking keys off keyrings
And in the early hours
Just trying to stop this silent ceiling staring
You push your tiny body into mine
So we can break these bones we're bearing

You know I'll only let you down
These heavy hearts I carry around
With me
Oh

Learning lasting lessons
About what it means to settle
You make the strangest noises
The smell of flesh on metal
As the years slip past you
I feel these footsteps burn beneath me
I turned to tell you one last time
But you had gone completely
