lyrics

Awake, Dear Heart

And I felt your presence under the stairs,

And never actually thought enough to think that I should care,

But I saw you by your bedside, you were singing through your prayers,

And realized you were never actually there.

Oh, sweetie, tell me, where have you gone?

You put away the fake act and you played your hallowed songs.

I tried to find the right note and I wrote it down all wrong.

Tell me you have found where you belong.

I woke up with my heart torn through my chest,

And cowered by the table as I shook from what you said.

Unstable in insanity, the fog colored my head.

In the humid air, my body felt your breath.

But sweetie, beg me. Where have you gone?

You put away your insides and you played your hallowed songs.

I tried to find the right note, and I wrote it down all wrong.

Tell me you have found where you belong..

With me.

You messed up.

Tried to solve the neighbor's problems,

I'm a tombstone in the yard and

I messed up.

Tried to complicate the problems,

Made a grave, and then engraved a name like

You and me

Are a concentrated atom

In a bomb out by the harbor.

At night, I weep.

I'm a ghost under the mattress, and I'm coming up behind you while you

Sleep for me.

You're a bridge over the water

That is anything but holy.

And you and me,

We're a pair, another love song

In an album and it goes a lot like this:

La da di da...

Sweetie tell me, where have you gone?

You put away your fake ideals, you play your hallowed songs.

And I tried to find the right note, and I wrote it down all wrong.

Tell me you have found where you belong.

Sleep by me.

I'm a ghost under your mattress and I'm

Coming up behind you while you sleep.
