It’s four AM, I’m waking up to your perfume
Don’t get up, I’ll get through on my own
I don’t know if I’m home
Or if I lost the way into your room
I’m spiraling into my doom
I’m feeling half alive but I know one day
You and I will be free,
To live and die by our own rules,
Despite the fact that men are fools.
I’m almost alive, and I need you to try
And save me.
It’s okay that we’re dying,
But I need to survive tonight, tonight.
Well excuse me while I get killed softly,
Heart slows down and I can hardly tell you I’m okay
At least ’til yesterday,
You know you got me off my highest guard,
Believe me when I say it’s hard.
We’ll get through this tonight
And I know one day you and I will be free..
And you touch my hand ever so slightly
(Boy we’re not ready for this yet)
And the deadly look he cast upon me
I won’t regret, I won’t regret
I won’t regret. I won’t regret…
And I was trying to disappear,
But you got me wrapped around you
I can hardly breathe without you
I was trying to disappear
But I got lost in your eyes now,
You brought me down to size now.
I’m almost alive
And I need you to try and save me.
It’s okay that we’re dying
But I need to survive tonight, tonight
