It's easy to drift sometimes In a world of ships in the night And backness Is comforting When you're in over your head When you cant face up When you're dancing around the broken glass Call on me, softly I'll rest my old quilt around your shoulders You can run your fingers through its old familiar tears Take comfort in its memory And wash it all away down the kitchen sink The monsters will never get us
I like the way your hair is tossed up first thing in the morning And yesterdays makeup is still a little on your face The way the sunlight hits your skin in the early hours That is the girl that no else gets to see But me That is MY Leah
Down a tipsy staircase Encased in narrow brick The cigarette smoke rises to greet us Your strong frame in front guiding me With gentle hand behind Their playing funky jazz That resonates far too loudly A cover of some popular song I vaguely remember it from before When the world was black and white
I order two beers and two shots From an old bartender who'd rather not be there But I'm happy so it doesn't bother me I sit for a moment and think about contentment And how its so easy to lose And I grip you a little tighter Holding onto that moment for dear life We sip on our beers And your glazed eyes never looked so green As they do in the haze of smoke and christmas lights When you say "I love you" And mean it
Suddenly I'm petrified What if I lost you? ****** this up? Or you died? In some terrible accident? What if you tire of me? Or find someone prettier, or smarter? What if time dries us up like sun spent raisins until all of our juicy pulp is petrified?
I look into your kind face and want to run. Back up those tipsy steps And down those city streets But someone sowed our heartstrings together We are bound, its too late
I take the shot
For wetter or worth In weakness and in wealth Till you give back my heart
