Lyrics
Close the doors
If you want to seen her breathing again
Blur the days
Sleeping is just not an option

How come every time I walk, you crawl?
Then you cut out all the letters that make up this note

I won't, I won't give up until I find out
Until I find what happened to you

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I held you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me

Left dangling in the wind

You're not there
I poke needles in the neck of a doll
She pokes back
Asking why can't I just let her lie

How come every time I walk, you crawl?
Then you cut out all the letters that make up this note

I won't, I won't give up until I find out
Until I find what happened to you

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I hold you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me

Left dangling in the wind

Don't let the days escape
What I did brings more of them
And we'll be waiting just for them

[Repeat: x2]
Over my dead body
Over the search they lead
They won't find them anymore

[Repeat: x2]
The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I hold you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me

Left dangling in the wind
