Manchester Orchestra - Colly Strings lyrics

Take a leaf of paper draw your mind
A bourbon brown that can burn my eyes
I lost your presents underneath the bridge

unlock the door
let's talk it out
against the wall
hands on my mouth
can this be it, is it really over now?

you wore a pink t-shirt and khaki pants
you played your songs and danced your dance
i unwrapped your present underneath your feet

nine to eleven you're getting week
the tile is cold i can barely speak
and i think she's gone but i'll be sure for safety's keeping

if you say no then no it will be
i'll stick it out, skin pierced with colly strings
just play it cool, yeah, and try to avoid being seen
i'll stick it out, skin pierced for nothing

Well yeah I saw inside the mirror and your smoking gun,
unloading lead inside me, i was subscribing one by one,
and i fell so fast in seth ott's bedroom

you said you saw it coming, but you didn't see nothing
your eyes were on the living room, your eyes were on the closet
don't worry about it, don't worry about anything

a pity invitation to an awkward house
for pseudo-boy who would rather wear a blouse
i sincerely saw your skin for the very first time

my curly hair and a voting booth
confessantly, this is the first time i've loved you
and God I mean it, God i mean it, i hope that i mean it

because like dying young, idols got the best of me
well don't stop calling, you're the reason i love losing sleep
and the building collapsed, so we'll shop one, we'll shop one for something

we'll stick it out, skin pierced for something
besides, don't release me until it's over
besides, we can't believe without bleeding

besides, we can't believe without bleeding
