I didn't think you'd burn so fast.

lyrics

Loosen your lips
This is a safe ship
With all the mirrors faintly askew

Man with a gun
Looking for someone
Else with a gun who looks for him too.

Spare me the grief tonight
The people have lost their minds
And as
We were holding you down
You were laughing yeah

Look at the graph
Whoever laughs last
Laughs well beyond the point that feels good

City of rakes
All of the same faith
Closing their eyes and praying for you

We’re on our knees tonight
Scanning the clouds in flight
And as
You were plummeting down
We were watching it

I didn’t think you’d burn so fast
The fires were going straight through your hair
I hope it doesn’t hurt so bad
We will massage your bones
And write you poems
That make you want
To be our Valentine.

Spare me the grief tonight
And close all the curtains tight
Because
We are turning around
Flowers spring from your mouth
We were watching it
