DO YOU SOMETIMES LAY IN BED AWAKE AT NIGHT WORRYING?
DO YOU SOMETIMES REPLAY SCENES OVER AND OVER?
DO YOU SOMETIMES MAKE YOURSELF CRINGE IN MEMORY?
DO YOU SOMETIMES USE MUSIC TO HELP YOU SLEEP?
DO YOU SOMETIMES LISTEN TO THE WATERBOYS?
DO YOU, SOMETIMES?

lyrics

Tossing and turning on a sea of teeth
The Girl In The Swing always helps me to sleep
And not for the first time in my whole life
But I fucked up pretty bad this time….

Here at the top of my skull, I wonder, how could it be
If hearts are little liars and are not to be believed

And you say I am insolent
Oh, I’m incomplete
I’m a forest fire on a city street
But I don’t want to be
I’ve got a life to lead
And you say I’m juvenile
I’m an awful friend
I’m a runaway train at the railroad’s end
Something I don’t want to see
That’s not even me, no

I was sailing away upon a lake of sweat
Every harbor filled with poison regret
And I wasn’t sure if I’d survive
So I brought a pistol to your knife fight

Here at the top of my skull, I wonder, how could it be
If hearts are little liars and are not to be believed

And you say I am insolent
Oh, I’m incomplete
I’m a forest fire on a city street
But I don’t want to be
I’ve got a life to lead
And you say I’m juvenile
I’m an awful friend
I’m a runaway train at the railroad’s end
Something I don’t want to see
That’s not even me, no

Some ride for a woman who has no name
Some ride for a king
Me, I ride and ride for The Girl In The Swing
Race like a phantom through fields of snow
You ask me if I know what love is, well sure I know
But hearts are little liars and must be treated so
If hearts are little liars and I don’t want to know
