lyrics

the green of the trees leads me home
as this train rolls through all the grey growth
and as i lift my head that old man says
this is all you've ever known
this is all you've ever known

and i see it all falling apart now
i see it all coming to an end
and you say this love will kill you
well mama please die as friends
well mama please die as friends

your arguing it carries through the halls
you're arguing about who first pulled the pistol
and no, i don't know and no, i don't care
all i know is we're the first to fall
all i know is we're the first to fall

and i say loneliness please leave me
i need some time to think
and if you were to go and leave me all alone
perhaps i'd wake on the brink
perhaps i'd wake on the brink
(of nothingness)

and now that it's all falling apart
you hold up your, your bruised heart
and sing oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last

these pebbles begin to fade
as ivy grows on the nostalgic graves
and if love is something that can grow on you
i guess it can die too
i guess it can die too

and you, you're sitting in the hallway
and you, you're hoping for the blues
and you sang a song in the hope we'd sing along
and now you're at an absolute
now you're at an absolute

and now that it's all falling apart
you hold up your, your bruised heart
and sing oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
may this time be the last

i've lived my life behind a screen
and now this make-up has washed clean
and i could really use a bowerbird
to come and take this bluebird home
to come and take this bluebird home

if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
