Pool Sticks and Cigarette Burns

I hold my breath when I kiss you
Cause you taste like the morning after
and in your smile there’s a lie
that makes me wince when I hear your laughter
What did they do to you?
Where is your middle?
Where is your end?
What did they take from you?
Were you their lover?
or were you their friend?
Can’t sleep in your bed?

Confess all night my dear
I’ve been deaf since I shot my gun at the floor
Hold your chin up, girl
I wanted those eyes since you walked in the bar
Oh what a night for our lips to part
and speak
cause we’re too drunk to sleep

I can’t kiss you when you kiss me
cause I think of those morning afters
and in my mind, there’s a lie
that makes me think kissing doesn’t matter
What did they do to you?
Where is your middle?
Where is your end?
What did they take from you?
Were you their lover?
or were you their friend?
Did they sleep in your bed?
In your head?
in the end?

Confess all night my dear
I’ve been deaf since I shot my gun at the floor
Hold your chin up, girl
Oh I’ve wanted those eyes since you walked in the bar
I want to be light
oh I want to be warm
Oh I want to be light
oh I want to be warm
and sleep
cause we’re too drunk to dream
