it’s not a silly little moment, it’s not the storm before the calm
this is the deep and dying breath of this love that we’ve been workin on
can’t seem to hold you like I want to so I can feel you in my arms
nobody’s gonna come and save you, we pulled to many false alarms
we’re going down and you can see it too
we’re going down and you know that we’re doomed
my dear, we’re slow dancing in a burning room
I was the one you always dreamed of, you were the one I tried to draw
how dare you say it’s nothing to me?
baby, you’re the only light I ever saw
I’ll make the most of all the sadness, you’ll be a bitch because you can
you’ll try to hit me just to hurt me so you leave me feeling dirty cause you can’t understand
go cry about it, why don’t you?
my dear, we’re slow dancing in a burning room…
don’t you think we oughta know by now, don’t you think we shoulda learned somehow?
