lyrics

In the dark your breath comes like the whimper of a mouse
like you think I am not really there and I’m not there
I’m cross-legged In my night gown On the couch
Mouth dry From an orange and its peels

on the pavement we walked you and i
a mockery of what we used to enjoy
no more rhythmic words to carry us,

just the swallow sound
of a city spitting out ugly people
tryin’ to be friends, trying to be friends

But it’s okay
Cause you’re not there
you’re text in space
just text in space

there’s nothing left but our empty paces
in shoes too big to fit who we were
a really fucking long time ago
When you lived somewhere not too far from the beach
your kiss was still like an hourglass
And i wonder why chase the ghost
of every happiness I’ve ever had

But it’s okay
Cause you’re not there
you’re text in space
just text in space

I’m just too frightened to send an email or call
So I give up a night to read Infinity Blues by Ryan Adams
And see you in my head,
And see you in my head,

But it’s okay
Cause you’re not there
you’re text in space
just text in space
