lyrics

We are lying in your bed
the wine is spinning in my head
I want to kiss you one more time
but my lips are sore and I'm
awfully aware I shouldn't even be here
I shouldn't even be here

I want to taste it one more time
the saltiness the smoke sublime
your eyes are calling me to stay
and the door's so far away
But I'm awfully aware I shouldn't even be here
I shouldn't even be here

I should have stayed away from you
I should have run when I first saw you
I should have chosen another way
And yet I'm standing here before you
awfully aware I shouldn't even be here
I shouldn't even be here

The forest used to seem so dark
now it seems magically enchanting
I want to get lost in your thorns
I want to hide behind your branches
But I'm awfully aware I shouldn't even be here
I shouldn't even be here

It's like I can't control my mind
and I can't control my body
I keep ending up back here
though I know it'll make me sorry
And you'll never let me near
I shouldn't even be here

The dawn is breaking as I tangle myself out of your sheets
I am shaking as the cold air hits my skin and I weep
I shouldn't be here
You shouldn't be here
We shouldn't be here again
