Alkaline Trio Those Lungs Lyrics

Last updated: 03/04/2010 10:00:00 AM

Now I lay me down to pass out wasted again.
I guess that makes this the seventh time this week.
There's some words in my head that could keep me from dying.
Are you handling this any better than I am?
If I keep it together would you promise to keep us together?

Oh, sometimes we lose each other,
But please don't lose your tongue.
When I get home I'll keep you up for hours
I'm gonna need breath in those lungs.
And when you're finally able to fall asleep,
Though, the sun might disagree,
I'm gonna lay right there and watch you breathe
'Til you wake up to me.

How's it happen that I get to have you for so long?
But then your just ripped away from me as I get tossed out to the sea
To fight the sharks out there and wait for a wind swell
Oh, I'm kind of like a sailor back in 1942
Yeah, I wanna fight the good fight, but goddamn I'm gonna miss you.

Oh, sometimes we lose each other,
But please don't lose your tongue.
When I get home I'll keep you up for hours
I'm gonna need breath in those lungs.
And when you're finally able to fall asleep
Though, the sun might disagree
I'm gonna lay right there and watch you breathe
'Til you wake up to me.

Please don't lose your tongue.
Please don't lose those lungs.

Oh, sometimes we lose each other,
But please don't lose your tongue.
When I get home I'll keep you up for hours
I'm gonna need breath in those lungs.
And when you're finally able to fall asleep,
Though, the sun might disagree,
I am gonna lay right there and watch you breathe
'Til you wake up to me.
