Breathe in
Breathe in this air, no trace of haze
But the water's warm
Just stay awake
Don't lose your brave

And it's so sick
The way he bruised your wrists
I'll try to hold, hold on to this
The only beds we've built
Without all the voices and pills

She said, "I want a way out
But these lights and tabs are blinding
And the only road is winding"

(Tripping over your feet under the porch light)
(Broke my fall on the gate, but I still had my sights aligned)
(Man, my hand's on your waist)
(But I still haven't met your eyes)
(You said you wanted a drink tonight)
(I think you need your sleep tonight)
(Follow this driveway out to the road and don't worry)
(I'll take the bus home)

My eyes were sown shut
We knew what we'd become
Two hearts caught in the wash
And they watched us grow lost
