lyrics

Clothes on your floor will free you of guilt
Your lipstick on sheets can help you forget
Am I the ghost in your halls?
Or the corpse in your closet?
The doc says I’ve lost it
You say I’ve lost myself
But I watched you lose everyone that you ever cared about

(So I’m calling you out)

Twelve story buildings
You find so fulfilling
And I can still tell your smile is fake
You’re good on your toes
But no one can see
Just be honest with me
And I’ll cut you a break

You were the gravity
Holding me down
I was the plane crash heading nowhere south
These past few years
They’re so dead to me
So I compiled all your fears into melody
Don’t learn this and sing with me
You’re always one step ahead of me
Don’t learn this and sing with me
(Repetition for irony)
You’re one step ahead of me


Twelve story buildings
You find so fulfilling
And I can still tell your smile is fake
You’re good on your toes
But no one can see
That your eyes still flood like a lake
(Flood like a lake)
You’ve been so reckless
I’ve been a mess
Let’s trade places for old time’s sake
(Old Time’s sake)
You’re good on your toes
But no one can see
Just be honest with me
And I’ll cut you a break

You danced away the headaches
And I wrote away the heartache
I wish we never kissed
I wish we never fucked
I wish we never met
I wish we never touched

Twelve story buildings
You find so fulfilling
And I can still tell your smile is fake
You’re good on your toes
But no one can see
That your eyes still flood like a lake
(Flood like a lake)
You’ve been so reckless
I’ve been a mess
Let’s trade places for old time’s sake
(Old Time’s sake)
You’re good on your toes
But no one can see
Just be honest with me
And I’ll cut you a break

Cut you a break
