lyrics

scattered clouds, scattered thoughts
dreaming of the things we shouldn't be, hoping we don't get caught
blistered souls on a shattered tile
we fell in love, just for a little while

look how defined you are in the 7am sun
when i gaze at you, my worries are... undone?
that's what she told me anyway, our purpose is similarly dry
to merely exist and wonder under the sky
under the sky
under the sky
under the sky

she told me everything i wanted to hear
wearing their pre-woven lies that she'd heard by ear
there's no privacy in this town of hers
she's got a panic alarm hidden under her spurs

she told me everything i wanted to hear
wearing their pre-woven lies that she'd heard by ear
there's no privacy in this town of hers
she's got a panic alarm hidden under her spurs

when she enters the saloon, she has a glint in her eye
she pretends she understands when you say you want to die
what a mechanical response to a fraying story
she's basking in the sunlight of her hero glory

and you can say we didn't stay too long together
but according to her, i was just under the weather
she was more concerned with family affairs
the truth is, my darling, i know no one cares

i've been in the shadows, i've heard all the lies
the fact you're not listening isn't really a surprise
when i have tears in my eyes
a cheerful disguise
i'm cutting off ties

... i'll say my goodbyes, shall i?

(aah)

she told me everything i wanted to hear
wearing their pre-woven lies that she'd heard by ear
there's no privacy in this town of hers
she's got a panic alarm hidden under her spurs

you look pretty today, not a cloud up above
it's you that i want, and it's you that i love
if i had wings to fly with, i'd be up there right now
but if i jumped up from this rooftop
i'd still be on the ground.
