Every night I fall asleep
On the promise I alone will die with the secrets that I keep
Wake up on the wrong side of the bed
Hum a couple bars of "you are so beautiful to me..."
Where will I be when that howl fades to a whisper
Thoughts that should be x'd off by now cut like scissors
Can't stop thinking about the things that come in twos
You see, I never looked too good in the black and blues
Or walking a mile in somebody else's shoes
The air may be thin, but you've always got the view
I close my fishbowl eyes
And swallow, there are so many...
And when your life flashes before your eyes
I will wait in the peripheries
