lyrics

Wish I could be a damn good listener
I could have saved you that night
I try to tell myself there was hope or at least something similar
But I know my lies are white

Well we put ourselves in a brand new room
With locked windows and doors
All we've found so far are expectations, no hesitations yet
And within our reach I can't believe
The sound you sent to the floor
We both grabbed the walls and went for it all
As soon as our lips met

And with your hands holding mine
I moved mine up your sides

I won't be scared at all
I'll be the first one to call
And sign up to be your pall bearer
I'll keep my head up tall
Trust your body won't fall
You'll find me up in the front right corner
I kept a straight face for years
I even found you in tears
And now I'll be the best gravedigger
And bury me please
Because it should have been me
I'll dig six feet in an hour

We positioned ourselves accordingly
With every single word that we've read
And I imagine you with concentration
I'm constantly awaiting your voice
It took a whole day one time just to say goodbye
I still remember what was said
If the coffin was open, I'd have you taken
without making a noise

My hands ran through your hair
It was like you were there

These arms are yours, your eyes are mine x3

I won't be scared at all
I'll be the first one to call
And sign up to be your pall bearer
I'll keep my head up tall
Trust your body won't fall
You'll find me up in the front right corner
I kept a straight face for years
I even found you in tears
And now I'll be the best gravedigger
And bury me please
Because it should have been me
I'll dig six feet in an hour
