(Oh crashing airplane, where were you the day she left?)
Underneath the laughs there lies a need That nobody is getting. And an honesty that doesn't stretch far enough To show us all how much this will mean to us, my dear. And when we're old we'll tell ourselves that we did Everything that we could to save this. But now--we do nothing.
I've slept for twenty years, but I've acted strong at least If you're leaving again, then you're leaving again And you're gone. And I feel nothing anymore, so just keep walking away Thirty-thousand steps, I'll watch you for every second and never feel alone.
I've been sleeping For at least the last two years My dear, my princess, my sister, my lover, my friend. I made you a bed of thorns for every rose you ever left outside my door, That's all you ever left me.
Lay your scars out in rows, Lay your scars out in rows, Lay your scars out in rows To show me what I've done to you.
Lay your scars out in rows, Lay your scars out in rows, It was my weakness that couldn't save us.
So lay your scars out in rows, So lay your scars out in rows, So lay your scars out in rows for me.
We were one, and what are we now?
(Act strong, at least And don't turn around. If I'm leaving, then I'm leaving, and I'm leaving, and I'm gone.)
