lyrics

As we drove the trailer - top heavy, half moon climbing cross the city - I was thinking 'bout the stories, 'bout the ghost that you was telling on the street. And ohhhh, how terrified I’d be if you stole the breath right out of me, out of me, in my sleep. Oh how terrified I would be if you stole the breath right out of, out of me in my sleep, in my sleep.

I know that I’ve seen you - in the shadows, in the corners of the sunlight - you’ll be a heron, or a hummingbird, you’ll be swimming in the ocean. I was thinking ‘bout how I held your hand in the hospital and we watched the breath slip out of you, and the breath was slipping out. Where you as terrified as me, when the breath was slipping out of you? Out of me…

Before you go - you really go - you’ve gotta make me see: how will I live without skin? How does one live without skin? 'Cause this world, it hurts so bad sometimes. Cause this world it hurts so bad sometimes.

I once knew a boy - and to him the sound of his beating heart was all and everything - he lived his whole little life in a fish bowl filled with water, so that the sound would echo loud. So that his heart would echo loud.

Cause when your heart echoes loud, you always know every time you skip a beat. Cause when your heart echoes loud, you always know every time you skip a beat. When your heart echoes loud, you always know every time you skip a beat.
