Pull the trigger tight and watch our distances explode
If Texas is forever, where’s your home sweet home?
If anything should happen to me, I want you to know
I’ve loved you since ever since then…
Up there, where the sky looks a little less blue and a little more like the love we used to have
That’s where I’ll be headed now darling, that’s where all the stars go to die
Five thousand years and a minute wasn’t enough to make you stay for the night, so I’ve
Set my sights for the southern lights, but won’t you at least say goodbye?
The cold in my hands are getting worse with each passing sunset I wasted on your breath
The diurnal dreams and burning cash, the handmade kisses stippling your shirt
Expect me to return before the moon forgets I wasn’t there, and my shadow falls into debt
With the tear stains on your bedroom wall, did you really think it wouldn’t hurt?
Like cigarettes and patron saints, I’ll always come back to haunt the corners of your lungs
Like aching sighs and floral lace, your promises falling on another eternity
Like half-opened novels abandoned facedown on the coffee table, like the last calls left unsung
Like the bullet on my throat you placed as you knew you couldn’t leave me
Down here, where the ground looks softer, but only before the final crash starts to strike
Where will you be headed now darling, did you ever ask the stars to lie?
Five million years and minute more, and I would have made you stay for the rest of your life
So set your mind, take the northern lights, I won’t be there to say goodbye.
Don’t dance around me, I know what it means
No communication cannot be received
But I’m such a sucker for the rain…
