He said “I think you just need fingers
ran through your soul
like you’d be doing to my hair.”
I said, “that’s not fair.
Don’t say something you might not mean
It’s one thing to make me needy between the legs
but even worse to make me needy between the lungs.”
I’d hold your hand
trace my finger along the crook of your elbow
to the curve of your shoulder
the hills and valley of your chest
the slope of your neck
to the tussles of your soft, cinnamon hair.
Maybe one day I’ll finally get good at getting over you
But until then I’ll have another drink while I listen to another song that reminds me of you
I’ll drive by your house again and read through old phone conversations
Oh cause one day you wont cross my mind
But until then I’m still at this bar, stuck on you
I imagine hearing your name and not giving it a second thought
There will be no floods of memories that have to be fought
No ache in my heart nor tears in my eyes
You’ll be gone and I’ll have moved on
But until then I’m still at this bar, stuck on you.
Do you remember all those words you whispered into my sheets?
Have you found someone new to keep you warm at night
because I miss listening to the sound of you breathing as we sleep
and I just want your hand to find mine in the darkness one more time.
I’m driving down the road that leads to your house
But I turn left because someone else
Now lays on my side of the bed.
I wish you both the best
but I can’t help myself from
Wishing I could see your face again
And Wishing we could head back to your place
And wishing you found home in my arms.
I have a tendency to run from arms that are stretched open
for me. A tendency to think when people take
an interest in me, they only mean to pry me open with an oyster knife and leave
me empty. Your past has taught you that anyone can leave if they want to try.
So you don’t pry and you don’t ask why, but you always stay
I hope it works out for you
And that she’s the love of your life.
But if there’s a chance for me
Just know I’m waiting on your call.
If love falls through
I’ll be there to catch you.
I miss you all the time
Can never get you off my mind
I’d come back to you in a heartbeat
If you ever opened your arms again.
And he’s calling my phone again
but I can’t tell him that I wish
He was you instead.
Its always worse at night baby
Always hate to be apart baby
Wish you would be mine baby
Wish you would take more
than just my time baby.
Well I’m getting on without you, baby
Even though I still miss you, baby
Men call me beautiful
and I call them back.
But no matter how I try
I’m still thinking of you
at the end of the day.
Hoping you’ll give us another shot.
