Every second a star dies
And I'm not sure what that signifies
But when we met I used to see supernovas in your eyes
Now there's nothing grand but something simpler
And that's how it always ends
Not with a bang
But with a whimper

We begin to fall asleep
well before we run out of words
as I hold her in my arms
or am i held in hers?

like ball to glove
like light to match
like fish to hook
shes a catch

and I realised
everything I missed
like feeling her lips curl
into a smile or a kiss

I look into her eyes
while she stares into the abyss
her fingers uncurl just a little bit
and we fall asleep like this

the more I see
the less I know
that's a lesser evil
so I'll let it go

the more i have
the more i need
the greatest evil
is a little greed

the more I live
the more i'm in debt
to everything i remember
and every think I forget

and at the end of time
the meek will inherit the earth
and all its worth
which will be nothing

I'm sleeping in the lounge
because I can't sleep in my bed
because you're stained in my sheets
and a stain in my head

I've deleted all my music
and I've started anew
four thousand songs down the drain
that you listened to, too

yet I can't wipe away
all the footprints you left
down the memory lanes
in my head and my chest
