Lyrics
That smoke, it moves just like sweet velvet
It lures me in till I'm drinking to kill the pain
Trying to stay out of a fight but the liquor, it won't let me
The only thing it's killing now is me

Your darkest eyes and pale skin are always on me
Black fingernail polish is chipping off again
On my mind just like a death threat or maybe death wish
Kill me anytime I'm ready for it

No one else was ever half this beautiful
No two hearts were ever half what ours was whole, whole
Desperate like the rain on your midnight window sill
You said I love you and I know that's what you meant
I know that's what you meant

There's a Holy Grail of a simple life led somewhere
In the blankets of trees between you and Tennessee
St. Peter's in a river running out to Homer's sea
Where the leaves can break your heart
And the waves might wash me clean

No one else was ever half this beautiful
No two hearts were ever half what ours was whole, whole
Desperate like the rain on your midnight window sill
You said I love you and I know that's what you meant
Hey, I know that's what you meant
