Grab your cigarettes,
And follow me out of the living room.
And Ill get drunk enough to tell you how I feel
About the men you loved,
And how they all seemed to get the best of you
Because If I dont say these things, you know,
If that look in your eyes, as I slowly go through the evidence,
Gives any insight into the void you cant get filled
Then your heart it’s bigger than any Ive come up against.
And if nobody has loved you enough, I know now,
So I hope my voice can stay as clear as I need it to
But that my words take on the nature of a drill
To be set against the frozen sea inside of you
Because if I don’t tell you Im falling in love, then
Someone will, and maybe someday youll be listening.
But I could be just as you need me up until.
The kind of guy you say youre looking for,
Sounds like the kind of guy I want to be
But if you just want someone to hold you right now, then
Its the nights like this in the quieter parts of Los Angeles
When you think you see the outline of the beast, up in the hills.
Well you might be sitting beside the only person you could face it with
But if you dont want me after tonight,
I have to believe that
