  • a fallen eyelash might grant my wish
    but what more could i ask for
    i have the sight of your face when i wake up
    and before we fall asleep
    i hear the voice of an angel
    calling me her true love
    they say the rules for fools who rush in
    are the same as russian roulette
    life, if you choose an empty chamber
    or a bullet in the head
    and you can say that you won't play
    or go shoot something else instead
    either way, the last thought that you think
    will be the first that you forget
    but lest the fear of your own life
    cause you to live like you'd met death
    know love while you still can, fill your lungs
    let me hear your quickened breath
    sing like you were suicidal
    tremble atop the treble clef
    to hell with this life, if without
    love, let your eyes roll back to heaven

    and with such ease we'll shun these needless trepidations
    senses suspended as the second hand lingers
    from our ocean, as we name every constellation
    with the sounds that we make that escape the restraints of words
    some will say it's all inside our heads
    some say they've seen the light so you'll continue chasing their silhouette
    so point the finger at whom you like
    or raise your head and curse the sky
    it makes no difference
    that's why i never could decide
    between you and me, girl
    you know i'll never choose a side
    it's just you and me, girl
    just you and me

    i had a debt with the devil
    bet him that i could drink him under the table
    with shots of holy water
    jameson's and jack daniel's
    and he said, as we poison our livers
    let us drink unto your health
    no one gets the best of me
    i keep that part to myself
    and if i dream so many sweet dreams
    my brain burns itself a cavity
    or if my posture's compromised
    by more than time's IV drip gravity
    i will say that i once had
    while others moan they still don't have any
    and i will get it all back again
    in the next cycle of my depravity
    cos my poverty means nothing
    when death's writing its blank checks to me
    and though i could drive off this cliff
    or wish my name had been vasectomy
    life's an accident others slow down
    and vainly strain their necks to see
    while i push my pedal to the ground
    and fly past them all in ecstasy
    yeah, some say that this life ain't the only one we get
    i once claimed that i'd found myself when i'd only been chasing my own silhouette

    so point the finger at whom you like
    or raise your head and curse the sky
    it makes no difference
    that's why i never could decide
    between you and me, girl
    you know i'll never choose a side
    it's just you and me, girl
    just you and me
    i could never love any other
    no one could ever take your place
    and we may be different people
    but i give you every piece of me
    so if you traded my love in search of more
    someone might remain to fill up space
    but there'd be nothing left
    we are one
