lyrics

Slated by your cigarette, brush off my cold shoulder
River isn’t moving yet and I was never over
I steal a look into your eyes where my thoughts are bound
Grey and icy and terrified I keep mine down for now
I keep mine down for now

Jaded lines of what’s behind, in what we chose to keep
Lies that kept me up all night, didn’t know your talk was cheap
Didn’t know your talk was cheap

Someday, I’m gonna find it
Reclaim my own autonomy
My love goes unrequited
It leaves a ghost and it’s haunting me

The freckles on your shoulder blades remind you of the summer
The times we stayed in bed all day
And I told you things I never told anybody else
And you’d hold me close and say you’re just fine
Oh I have those kinds of thoughts all the time

Someday, I’m gonna find it
Reclaim my own autonomy
My love goes unrequited
It leaves a ghost and it’s haunting me
Someday I’m gonna find it
Reclaim my own autonomy
Tell me my love is blinded
But you’re the only thing I see
