Lyrics

You talked me to sleep last night
I hadn't felt that sad in years
Your eyes like glass mistakes
They moved me close to tears

You speak those favourite fables
Which I am yet to live
And casually confirm my fears
That I've got nothing to give

I wish I could say that I've got no regrets
But saying that would be one more to pile on my desk
I wish I could say I've clung to time like gold
But as you said goodbye, I almost died
I almost died

I take it back, all of it
Those names I called myself
The heroes of my childhood
Like hardbacks on the shelf

I take it back, those promises
I made to everyone
I'm falling through a ribbon last
Before I'd learn to run

I wish I could say that I've got no regrets
But saying that would be one more to pile on my desk
I wish I could say I've clung to time like gold
But as you said goodbye, I almost died
I almost died
I almost died
