we were dead
playing with my heart playing with my head
all the money was spent
standing oh is what we get
hearts break over lunch
take em to the garage throw em in the trunk
we can see you next week

i can see the details of your mouth
closing down fixing me up
shutting me down make me smile
striking me out
everyone take apart my heavy heart
fix it up drive it off a cliff

you told me that we would see the sun
you told me that we would have some fun

can't believe you're on a string
pulling back letting go
i'm going home
call a taxi take the back seat
heads gonna roll
you never know i'm headed for the shore
can't sink or float
wrap me up it's time to go
and i'll see the sun

from the balcony we're throwing things
super polite telephone rings
looking for pills looking for dreams
over the hills and into the stream
i'll drop a hat you drop a glove
the closer we get the colder is love
i'm making sure the sun'll come up.


from The Weather Is Better, track released April 26, 2011
