lyrics

Something about the way you looked at me,
Pointed out the friend in need,
And I made you bleed.

Your days stretch out but your life stands still,
And when you hold hands you feel the chill,
That you first felt something like a year ago.

You're not so far away from a bad place,
The tangled lines we make,
A waste of space,
The taste of fear.

It's Friday night and she's dressed to kill,
But something in her head isn't.
And stars go out somewhere in her wake.
There's a space between her head and yours,
That you both left a year ago,
And in that space the spark that lit you died.

You're not so far away from a bad place,
The bottle or the gun,
A waste of space,
The taste of fear.

You're not so far away from a bad place,
If you could talk what would you say?
The choice you made is the price you're paying,
Now you're trying to live with it.

You're not so far away from a bad place.
(You've been running so fast trying to keep up.)

You're not so far away from a bad place,
If you could talk what would you say?
The choice you made is the price you're paying,
Now you're trying to live with it.
