Now that the city and I are friends,
can we sip a simple drink
and end up in our beds
with nothing left to think—
with the hope we’ll be let go?

I know my pain runs deep, deeper than I’ll look,
so it tied itself to you, whom I hardly even know,
I hardly even know.

Well the pain’s in the wrong room,
where you’re draped across my things,
with that chin up to my face--
it’s daring me to do who knows what,
who knows what, who knows what.

I can search a house for the perfect hiding place,
but everywhere I look it’s a room with you.

Well we kissed for just too long
and went just beyond our names.
And now a simple thread
has turned into a game
where we cannot be let go.

So as different as we seem, we must share something too—
like a timid little heart, once or twice left out, hiding ’neath our hair.

Well I know your pain runs deep, deeper than you’ll look.
So it tied your hands to strings—moving them towards
people’s hearts, people’s hearts, people’s hearts.

What if we’re the same and I’ll never be let go?
If we’re too much the same I’ll never be let go.

Please be colder, still.
Then, I’ll know you’re not like me.
And I’ll throw my pain to the air outside
where it really ought to be, it really ought to be.

If we’re too much the same I’ll never be let go.
