What can be scraped together, from our long worn emotions?
Handfuls of hate and a bittersweet devotion
'Cause I am pushing cobwebs, and I'm folding into myself
Who will find me under this mean sleep?

[Chorus:]
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change?
I had a mean sleep over you
And it hurts coming back to life

You could burn a thousand days and I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways and I'd still love you back to life
Without a lover to wake me,
And my loneliness like quicksand,
What can be scraped together, from our long worn emotions?
Handfuls of hate and a bittersweet devotion
'Cause I am pushing cobwebs, and I'm folding into myself
Who will find me under this mean sleep?

[Chorus:]
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change?
I had a mean sleep over you
And it hurts coming back to life

You could burn a thousand days and I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways and I'd still love you back to life
Without a lover to wake me,
And my loneliness like quicksand,
