lyrics

Well goddamn if I didn’t get that one right
The ghosts in the basement were disbanding last night
And goddamn I swear I did my best to try
But with so much friction yea I wasn’t quite on time
I swear you’ve got such lovely eyes
I saw you on the balcony I saw you take flight
And goddamn I swear I didn’t drink your wine
The specters in my bed kept me up all night

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me

Goddamn you’re so well designed
I swallowed lightening woke up by your side
We stayed up drinking all night
With the Mexican boys and their sordid smiles
So brush the shards off and walk two steps
The light moves through you
I’d love to see you tear your dress
Just tear your dress

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me

The boys all sit there (they’re practicing witchcraft)
And if you asked me to leave I would go with you
And if you asked me to try I would do my best to follow through
And if you asked me to leave I would build tiny bridges out of the remnants

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me
