lyrics

when the lights get bright i torture you
in the open yet behind your back
i tried to turn them off and cut the slack and fall and hang from a noose
but i couldn't even get that right

and i wish i could wish i never knew you
i wish i could wish to erase you
i'd wish i could fly right by you
but i can't and know that

if i could only find the words to say i'd say them to you
but i can't and
every waking moment of my day
i do it for you

you said i missed the boat
but i couldn't have stayed afloat (even without you)
stop those words before you say them; don't make them real
just count the days it takes to forget

these delusions skate the thinnest ice
i looked in your eyes alive in a different time
it's as if you're lady ashley and i toast to you for a damned good time
"at least it's pretty to think"
