Help me. Spread my table
I've been tryin' but I'm just not able
There's so much left inside
So very much I've been tryin' to hide
Life gets pretty heavy and I wish it was light
But after all I love the night
And there's that word again
I still hear it every now and again

I breathe you 'cause you help me forget
Everything I don't know about love yet
I need you 'cause you help me forget
Yeah, you help me forget
I drink you 'cause you help me to see
It's mostly myself that's killin' me
I think I have to, to help me forget
Everything I don't know about love yet

Someone said these were the best days
Best days of our life
I suppose there could be worse ways
Worse ways to learn to cry
And if these should be the last days
The last days for you and I
I suppose this is the best way
Best way to say goodbye

I breathe you 'cause you help me forget
Everything I don't know about love yet
I need you 'cause you help me forget
Yeah, you help me forget
I drink you 'cause you help me to see
It's mostly myself that's killin' me
I think I have to, to help me forget
Everything I don't know about love yet

It snows in here. It snows forever
But there's no Christmas underneath this weather
When it blows here and gets real cold
I wanna trip myself and fall upon your fabulous sword
And move here by the stained-glass window
Forget about the inside ghetto
Down here on the hardwood floor
The lines on the ceiling start to swim once more
Like a cheap Renoir, a fake Van Gogh
A pop Monet, a blue Degas
I breathe you. I need you.
