lyrics

Sometimes I lay awake at night
to see the sun pass through the blinds
in the apartment that we loved
in the summers that passed by
and I still wonder what you thought
when you looked into my eyes
I left that wine stain on the wall
and the scent of caramel
that you wore when we went out
to a city fast asleep
you always took my hand in yours
I always waited patiently

and all my worries and troubles seem to find me
it seems that all I leave behind me is a mess
and I’m still stuck inside the ruins of this poor excuse to call my head

I wrote a letter with the thought
that I would send it in the post
but then my stomach it got lost
and I forgot where it should go
and so I put it in my drawer
Above my socks beside some change
and I still read it now and then
when my days are full of rain

and it reminds me of the time
and now it seems so long ago
when you were sitting on our bed
and you looked so vulnerable
and you asked me where’d I’d been
and your voice it seemed to shake
and then room began to spin
as I struggled not to break
but then I sunk into the floor
you put your hands around my neck
and as you closed in on the door
you slowly kissed me then you left

and all my worries and my troubles seem to find me
it seems that all I leave behind me is a mess
and I’m still stuck inside these ruins,
I’m still stuck inside my head
