Close to Me

lyrics

Picture frames plastic rings
I was never good at saving things
Put me in a box, put me on a shelf
I'll try too hard to impress myself
Things you know, they go
The way they ought to be
I'll recite your words to keep me company
When the lights go out
In this crummy town
I hear your ghost
You're not around
It echos through every corridor
Every place inside you've been before
Things you know, they go
The way they ought to be
I'll recite your words to keep me company
Why can't I keep you close to me?
Every tangled web
I'm pulling out the seems
Whatever was, or is
Or how it used to be
Or how I got so old
Or how I always was
Would've kissed you on the mouth
Would've said it was enough
Things you know, they go
The way they ought to be
I'll recite your words to keep me company
I'll just hold my breathe
I'll wait patiently
You always made me laugh
Why can't I keep you close to me?
