lyrics

And I dreamt of you in bed

Saw the smoke swirl ‘round your head

Your back was to me

I could smell, I could smell your cigarette



And the smoke hanging mid-air

Hard to distinguish from your hair

Hard to distinguish and you’re staring at the wall

Oh, staring at the wall

Oh, staring at the wall



Hold my breath

Hold my teeth in your neck

So you won’t run away

Hold you down

Hold you ‘til I surround you

And you won’t go nowhere



You said you liked the photograph of me

Standing in the rain with a shotgun

You said you liked the photograph of me

So then why’d you kiss me and run?

Oh, kiss me and run



Hold my breath

Hold my teeth in your neck

So you won’t run away

Hold you down

Hold you ‘til I surround you

And you won’t go nowhere



And I woke to a birthday balloon

Popping outside my window

Like a shotgun

Like a new day dawning

And you’re somewhere in Midtown in her arms
