Lyrics

You, your lips like wine and haunting, tender eyes
once made for better days
for me and my fleeting, restless pride
I'd tethered up and tied to keep from blowing away
But then life grew old, and youth was lost forever
It felt stripped and torn away, left along the way
forced to face the change ourselves

I, I will always feel as long as this heart of mine is beating
I, I will always heal as long as this soul of mine is breathing

You, your heart like glass was flawed, yet so beautiful in it's shattering
How it cut to wire my fingertips
when I helped you with finding the scatterings
I'm not prepared to mend or repair or save you - at all
but when a broken thing can hold a broken thing
it makes the broken things feel whole

I, I will always feel as long as this heart of mine is beating
I, I will always heal as long as this soul of mine is breathing

You say you want to start a flame, but your heart is flooded over
and there is no way you're ever going to change enough for this

You, your lips like wine and haunting, tender eyes
once made for better days
