Said i feel so bad today,
My darling,
Did you get my letter,

Drawn up from my wooden hands,
The skies red,
And burning with conversation,

I guess we wont see him again,
So wasteful,
But your hair looks perfect,

Well i don't have another place we could go,
I guess that's something that we should know,
These idiot snowflakes and technicolour dreamscapes,
Pushing us out on,
Into the sweepstakes,

He wipes the red from his glass,
And says I,
Don't believe that's love,

Maybe we are just the same,
So playful,
In the dark of early mourning,

Could we just run away,
I've wasted,
So much time being boring,

No more feeling afraid,
It's fated,
That the stars keep unfurling,

But shining is something that stars need to do,
And nothing has ever been clearer than you,
Put out the lamp lights,
And fire up the sound sights,
Let time take itself back on outside,

She wipes the red from her glass,
And says,
Everybody's got to die,

And i only feel so bad when your not with me,
So let it bleed and spin on gently,
Cross over floors and idiot roars,
Lay on the benches and fireball adventures,
With our hands tied together and dancing forever,
And let it all burn and what could be better?

He throws the glass at the wall,
And says well
I do believe that's love.
