lyrics

We both catch our trains again
City streets like veins again
I swallow all my shame again
Let you take the blame again

Steal a glance across the tracks:
I ain't never looking back

You're a nightmare, you're poetry
We blur the lines of symmetry
We're neither of us gentle or kind
I'm desperate for your touch
I know I'm asking for too much
But could you ever stomach being mine?
James - what's on your mind?

You take your love and fold it up
It fits inside a coffee cup
Your heart’s the size of your fist
Clench it tight so it won’t split

Did you think it would come to this?
Borrowed time? stolen kiss?

You’re a nightmare, you’re poetry
We blur the lines of symmetry
We’re neither of us gentle or kind
I’m desperate for your touch
I know I’m asking for too much
But could you ever stomach being mine?
James - I need more time

You’re still some kid that chases the shadows
And looks for your place in the world
I know you: I know all your faces
And I know how much it can hurt
I’m sorry: sorry I held you and sorry I tore you apart

You’re a nightmare, you’re poetry
We blur the lines of symmetry
We’re neither of us gentle or kind
I’m desperate for your touch
I know I’m asking for too much
But could you ever stomach being mine?
James - make up your mind
