Skinned Knees

find your way in with skinned knees
you're so skinny. when's the last time you...
nevermind. you don't want to talk about...
you changed your mind. i'll act like i understand.
have a dream. let the dream go.
these pills feel like nothing at all.
guess it's fine if we fake it. smiling, we practice pretend.
when's the last time you meant it?
you've got a secret and good girls don't kiss and then tell.
put my heart in your pocket.
i won't be needing a pulse on this journey through hell.

if you go. if there's no turning back.
close your eyes while i fall through the cracks.
can't live long in a life so incomplete.
why'd i want to? if you'd never receive... my love.

i miss the days when you caught me. held me there,
my life in the palms of your hands.
i bought the promise you sold me. staked it all,
all on your castles of sand.
kingdoms will rise and kingdoms will fall.
find your way back with skinned knees.
i'll choose not to ask questions. change my mind.
the circle starts over again.

in life. in love. you're the light. you're a beacon,
you always have shined through the void.
in sickness. in health.
in all of the things we promised to never destroy.

if you go. if there's no turning back.
close your eyes while i fall through the cracks.
can't live long in a life so incomplete.
why'd i want to? if you'd never receive... my love.
my love.
