lyrics

It's a normal day
we're on a blanket in the park
I have to say
you're looking pretty, talking smart
infatuation is my drug of choice
the poison that I pick
I want to stuff my face with your sweet self
till I feel sick

Your arms are warm
your face is close, your lips are soft
and I'm ok
I'm feeling fine, but maybe not
and it's too late
I froze the moment our lips locked
I'll float away
just in time to feel my heart
anesthetize, become a rock
saying nice try, time to backslide
might not ever get unstuck
it all fades out until

I'm numb

I keep my baggage
tied in slip knots, packed up tight
but I let girls like you come in
and pick locks overnight
I hate the way I talk the talk
but walk the walk of shame
and I should know it
should know it always feels the same

Slipping back into old habits
in some kind of stone-faced panic
might just cut to TV static
shhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I can only have you for a moment
before I get lost or frozen
maybe this is the closest that we'll ever come
before it all wears off and

I'm numb
