As the moonlight leaks in through my eyelids
I can see it clearer than I ever have before
From the confines of my caved in love mine
Years slip through my fingers
I'm just etching out the days

Hearts were made to break
It's a feeling that I just can't shake

Lately I've been having fever dreams
Now I can see her nightmares play out on a movie screen
They've freed me from the chains I'm bound in
Sounding off the siren and running towards the top

Of the mountain where her footsteps just abruptly stop
And the choir only whispers to us who were not b

Because you ain't Jesus
You can't walk on water
You do not believe in
Anything at all

I have seen it in your eyes I know the weakness
Pleasing though it seemed at first now not at all

Creep out into the dark end of the hall
Sneak up on me from behind and watch me fall

Into the winter then
Came and went the summer
You rearranged the seasons
For no reason at all

And I got splinters, one after the other
Underneath my fingernails
from scratching at the walls

From scratching at the walls

Reason never had no meaning its just a ghost believe me
And I still can’t recall,
why I started bleeding from the lids of my eyes, carry out the plan
Without you noticing it all

In the future I won’t have to make this call
When you approach me on the street I won’t recall

Ever crossing paths or talking there for hours
Each drop of love is now just blood we've shed

Each drop of love we shared is now just blood we shed
Its pooling up outside our favorite restaurant
The church declared it all an act of God instead
I know you’re real, even if you’re only in my head
I know you’re real, At least more than a silhouette
