breaking up is like getting baptized it's like becoming brand new you were the sinner and I was Jesus ready to forgive you we'd say some words and cry some tears until things were okay i dunked you under water washing the mistakes you've made away but there's a problem with new beginnings the ending is the same as it was before being forgiven for everything is just reason to sin more
I look at you and I feel so safe I’ll give you the credit cause I’ve never been brave I’m being brave now cause you scare me so bad But I can’t run away from the best thing I’ve ever had
I might mess this up but you could too Living anywhere but in the present is a dangerous thing to do Looking behind always makes things seem better And looking ahead is like predicting bad weather
So I stay in the present and I breathe in your skin You can always read my mind like a Siamese twin Our eyes are so innocent but our bodies are not We could create a whole universe with this love that we’ve got
before you hurt her please remember the moment that you knew you were in love. you couldn't even breathe because the feeling overwhelmed your lungs. the first kiss, the first touch, you couldn't get enough even the fighting was alright because at least you were in love.
before you touch that other girl, remember the one you have the way she sleeps so peacefully and the way that she makes you feel less sad. remember her smile when you make her laugh, and the way her eyes look when she cries. the way she talks about the things she likes, the way that she kisses you goodbye.
before you get in bed with that stranger, remember the way she writes. the way she blows out cigarette smoke. the way she always tried to be nice. remember the way she looks at you, and even the way she complains. remember the way the seasons changed but the feeling seemed to never fade.
and when you hurt her anyways, say she's not to blame. remember that when you break something it doesn't work the same. remember that loud silence, the way that she couldn't look at you. the way you couldn't breathe, the things you wish you could undo. hold her one last time, say goodbye with a hug. It's when you hurt her that you'll finally remember that you are still in love.
You took a trip with Lucy, to leave a world of pain. She showed you a kaleidoscope of colors, but just left you feeling insane.
And then you danced with Molly, under the flashing lights, but all that did was make you sleep with a different girl that night.
This girl was named Addy, you thought you'd finally found the one. She made you feel so motivated, like you could get anything done. Then she left your heart racing, and made sure you couldn't eat. After 3 days you finally left her, because she'd never let you sleep.
You met a girl so opposite, she went by Mary Jane, with her you felt so at ease, she took away the pain. But your mother didn't like her, and neither did your dad. After awhile you realized that she didn't make you feel any less sad.
So you run back to the other girls, although they never left. They aren't too hard to find when they're always sleeping with your friends. Just one call and the girls will be back into your bed. They're hard to get rid of once you let them in your head.
I remember your eyes, but I don’t remember the color. The snow on the ground makes me forget about summer. I remember the sinking feeling, deep in the pit of my stomach. I remember the sound of glass breaking, I don’t remember what caused it. When I was a little girl I colored so many pictures, I can’t remember what of, I probably should’ve kept them. But the things that you keep don’t matter as much, we forget what’s in front of us trying to remember what we lost.
