All we had were weekends
So you took me to the garden
I'd been shaking ever since
We left your candle-lit apartment

Cause I was close, so I thought
To finally winning over you
And like running in the dark
Something to always catch your shoes

And you were sitting on a bench
Underneath a flowered arch
I think you said you knew all of their names
As some petals fell on your shoulders

And at that moment I was sure
That I never lived before
And every day I'd been alive
Smoking cigarettes and waiting for my turn to die

You were fumbling with your purse on my bed
Blackbird on repeat in my head
And you said,
"I- I've got nothing to offer you
Just me one last reason to have nothing else lose"

All right
Just stop, you should let it go
Just stop, you should let it go
Just stop, you should let it go

Lying on the grass until we all just fall apart
I can't believe that you are real
I hold you with my desperate arms
I know that desperate makes your voice crack
Turns you into a broken record
Takes your plans and leaves them burning
Out of the most careless of whims

I just wanted to get my shirt back
It always made me feel safe
And then she told me to spend the night
Now I'm a million miles away from safe

So I'll just roll around in these sheets
And pretend it doesn't mean a thing
And I'll go back to the poison
Living life likes it's a dream
Like it's a dream
Like it's a dream

You were fumbling with your purse on my bed
Blackbird on repeat in my head
And you said,
"I- I've got nothing to offer you
Just me one last reason to have nothing else lose"

I know you wanted something
Just a little more upbeat
Yeah I know you wanted something
Just a little more upbeat
But candles, they don't burn upside down
Candles they don't burn upside down
