Everybody sleeps
But I haven't done that in the last few weeks or so
And yeah, I know the remedy
But they ran out yesterday
I can't re-fill anything
Especially my heart. especially my brain
If I could bottle up this mess I could do it all again

And I don't wanna know if there's another part of me
Don't wanna feel if I'm alive
Don't wanna smell the bed where we used to sleep
I'm gonna miss it again, miss it again

Just wanna walk away from the ashes
And take the fact that I've been burned
And maybe let you know I'm still standin'
If you miss it again, miss it again, I'm around

And you, you were down the street
And I watched you through the windows draped with sheets so white
And yeah, it looks a lot like me
Is it a comfort that you needed or coincidence that's everything
Especially my eyes, 'specially my clothes
But does it move you inside out
Maybe I don't wanna know!

And I don't wanna know if there's that there's another part of me
Don't wanna feel if I'm alive
Don't wanna smell the bed where you used to sleep
Gonna miss it again, miss it again

Just wanna walk away from the ashes
And take the fact that I've burned
And maybe let you know I'm still standin'
If you miss it again, miss it again I'm around


And all the times you wanted out, you never said a thing about
How we would just become the ships inside of a bottle
Breakin' down, sails fallin' off
Tryin' to stay afloat inside a place you can't survive

Are we breakin' down?

'Cause I don't wanna know if there's another part of me
Don't wanna feel if I'm alive
Don't wanna smell the bed where we used to sleep

Just wanna walk away from the ashes
Take the fact that I've been burned
And maybe let you know I'm still standin'
If you miss it again, miss it again, I'm around
