lyrics

I'm 26, its catching up.
Still walk alone, still have bad luck.
Trying to fix this mess you left
but that ain't easy, there's no help.
Don't want to let you go or watch you leave,
you have a hold of me
Stranded on my own two feet, writing songs not getting sleep.

Some days I can't pick up the phone.
Sounds of your voice put me at home
When I am feeling so alone
But these days it's just a dial tone.
You tore my skin down to the bone.
And now i tread through parts unknown.
Chasing the sound, I'm now west bound, hope I won't see you around.

Thought it was a saving grace.
A light shone in a dark place.
Turned your back and ran from me.
Proof that nothing gold can stay.

I'll have to find another, we're poison for each other.
My friends always know what to say, they didn't like you anyway.
You made me smoke when i was stressed, you left me feeling so useless.
And once the smoke had settled down, you were nowhere to be found.

With blistered hands she hands the spade
I use to dig this god damn grave.
Every night she says her prayers,
With every breath I'm losing air.
I thought that you would be the one.
Like cigarette smoke in my lungs
I fucking need you.
i fucking need you.

Thought it was a saving grace.
A light shone in a dark place.
Turned your back and ran from me.
Proof that nothing gold can stay.

Like everything, she went away.
Thats when I learned that nothing stays.
I'm stranded on my own two feet.
Writing songs and losing sleep.

Thought it was a saving grace.
A light shone in a dark place.
Turned your back and ran from me.
Proof that nothing gold can stay.
