lyrics

You were waiting to die and I was waiting to be born
How does the night rust into the early morning?
How's that fair?
When you're not here?
You were digging your heels and I was biding both our time
Lacking my wheels, I knew the upper hand was mine
Until tomorrow
When you're full of sorry.
I didn't realize how bad you hurt
Until you started bleeding through your shirt

Hold your head up high
Memorize your alibi
Then ask the holy ghost to forgive your troubled mind
Grab hold of your life because here is where it starts
You'll never get inside my heart
You'll never make it out of hell alive

I was drinking the sky and pulling petals from bouquets
Asking god "who knows how to make love stay?"
Would you believe her? I got no answer.
I spilled my drink you didn't care so I just sang until I slept.
I woke to find your bloody fangs inside my bangs so I just wept.
Until your soul left.

Hold your head up high
Memorize your alibi
Then ask the holy ghost to forgive your troubled mind
Grab hold of your life because here is where it starts
You'll never get inside my heart
You'll never make it out of hell alive
