This city is haunted by the ghost of failure
I am one and you are one
We've spent this whole time on the run
From a lie that I told
That you closed your eyes and you chose to believe

So now you ask me for honesty
Just take a second, breathe
I'm not good enough for you
You were never good enough to me
No one's ever good enough to be
Or have something so naïve

But I broke my hand on your car
When you told me you were leavin'
And I begged for your forgiveness
My broken fingers bleedin'
My heavy heart repeatin' the phrase:
"Just stay here with me."

Then you took your clothes off instead
And you danced around my room
"Don't worry," you said,
"'Cause the end is coming soon
And we'll meet again someday
And we'll toast these stunning ruins
For the bride I'll never be
And the groom."

Now I picture you like snowflakes
Like desperate pouring rain
Like the beating of the drum
In a parade of the insane
You are the whisper in my ear
When I wake and no one's here
There's just the echo
Of your name

So now you ask me for honesty
I close my eyes, breathe,
I'm the one who always is
So ready to leave
To be a distant memory
To be a ship disappearing in the sea

And I crashed upon your rocks
When I heard your voice singing
And I begged for your love
With my busted ears still ringing
My heavy heart repeating:
"You are more than the promise of the sea."

Then you took your clothes off instead
And you danced around my room
"Don't worry," you said,
"'Cause the end is coming soon
And we'll meet again someday
And we'll toast the cursed ruins
Of the bride I'll never be
And the groom."
