lyrics

in my room again, the sounds of
cars lapping like waves
wish you were here so you could see
the candles and the sounds from my stereo

can you feel what's real
more than me?
beneath the sounds? to feel the fire -
like it's already mine
that i can almost taste
you're the one i want tonight
and i don't even know you

despite what i might say to you
it won't come out of my mouth
cause i shrink from what everyone will think
of breaking glass statues with or
without another drink in me

what a god damn fool
in front of mute tv screens
something about you took me back
to a time before, to another world
but now your face is small
slowly sinking in the sea of other
imaginary choices i won't make

i just tread in place
till someone makes a wave
big enough to send me on my way

so i'll stare into the flame till i'm quiet
i'll stare into the flame till i'm mesmerized
i'll stare into the flame till it's all i see -

so i don't have to turn around
and look at what
i've already got
(it's just too much)
