lyrics

Reaching for reason, my breathing is speeding. My heart is beating out of my chest.
The whispers in my head are never speaking any sense.
The colors of your voice fill my sky with a light show.
The shadows only follow me as far as the light goes.

Woken up from a cold sleep: my spine pops, my toes crack.
Tongue is numb. I can't speak. I can't tell you how to act.

(I know we'll take some time just to get it right)
but I'm a mess, an actor at best, a disaster falling faster through your eyes.
(If the sky was mine, I would give you half)
if I could fly through time, I would back track just to swim in your laugh.
(As I write this song, you're probably writing too)
Share with me the lines you drew!
(Your heart is dripping ink, beautifully bold)
Left with armor scarred, and a tattooed soul!

I do all that I can to love her
(but she won't see me as a lover)
She says to me, her love hurts
(sex is her only concern)
Used to think of us as love birds
(but her lack of trust hurts)
Her love stained like blood spurts
(she says to love is much worse)
In my head these are just words
(She's bright but the sun burns)
One thing the dumb learn
(is to never ever look upwards)
She's quick to draw her gun first
(her trigger explodes with thunder)
Her voice hits my skin and punctures
(my ribs break, my lungs burst)
I stutter. I'm slipping under.
I need southern comfort.

I need southern comfort.
