They clung together like snowflakes in the caress of the wintry air, a boy and girl with a trail of memories behind them, their words muffled into each others scarves. I thought for a moment on where they would end up in the years to come, but I know now that it didn’t matter… All I needed to know was there before my eyes, a vision of love against the illuminated backdrop of the stars.
I guess I should let go of the all the lives I was told I could lead,
Here’s a toast, wave goodbye to the boy that I wish that I could’ve been.
Now I’m tired of these hallways and I’m tired of the sound,
That my heart makes, every time it breaks and hits the ground.
These tracks I’m on don’t fit,
Half as well as the tracks on the back of my wrists.
I’m talking shit,
Don’t you trust a single word from these poisoned lips.
And I’m not interested in playing cool,
And I’m not looking for a romantic fool,
Don’t you talk to me about separate ways,
I just need someone to share the nights and days.
Of all the things I’ve never seen,
Of all the places that I’ve never been,
Of all the things that I’ve never done,
Baby you’ll always be number one.
