lyrics

This city swallowed us whole tonight
Took our time and gave us everything
Dead trees and worthless rebellions
Forced smiles and bags in the hall

And naked legs worked their way slowly up the wall
And a blink and a kiss and it was dawn
And everything that was ever important
It wasn’t anymore

And if there’s time
We can remember how it all fell apart
And despite what we thought back then
There is beauty in breaking hearts

I know we will sleep tonight
But fucking hell I wish that we wouldn’t
I catch myself thinking I would give years of my life
For seconds more tonight

So shut my mouth around your tongue
Cos my words can’t change a thing
And as our hands fall through each other’s hair
Oh god let me linger here

She said
“All the things you don’t know about me
And all the things I’ll forget about you
Just remember where you are
Remember this and it will pull through”

And if there’s time
We can remember how it all fell apart
And despite what we thought back then
There is beauty in breaking hearts
