As your lips turn blue it only reminds me
I’m not free from your nightmare
That I’m living in
When grey skies turn blue
I’m holding on to every scream
Trying to wake you will you wake up now?
Cut up on the floor
Your arms hold on to me some how
But that’s all you’ll get for now
We can’t pretend that this is
And as you turn cold
And hold on to me this night
Because the ground will only break you
Like morning skies filled with glimmering sunrise
I’d let you go if I knew
That it would break you as your lips turn
Every shade of blue
Confusing everyone you look at
Can you hear me now?
Screaming out your name
I won’t give up on this grey night
It’s the pieces that we keep for ourselves
When his lips won’t do
Keep mine in mind it’s gonna take time
But I’m gonna be fine
When his lips won’t do
Keep mine in mind it’s gonna take time
I’m gonna be just fine
If only you could mean more to me
If only I could keep cool headed
It’s the pieces we keep for ourselves
