lyrics

Like punchdrunk October flies in pointless rapture
Dancing one final dance before the capture
We are awkward and shakey as we move closer
We only want to fling ourselves down

We are making circles, don’t know how to land
Hovering over
We are sore, we are trying not to be sore
It is not working

We meet on this tightrope and we cough politely
You’re thief’s in the forest, mine goes prowling nightly
If we cut down our trees we’ll see them naked
And we could feel our feet upon the ground

Chorus

I woke up with you today though you were not here
My desire preceded me and my heart beats clear
We could roll around here if we just jumped down
But it’s so hard to stop flying through the air

Chorus

I had hopes that were so high
They could not always stay up
I have hopes that are so high
I guess sometimes they have to fall down
Oh

My sadness is hot, it fills up all the corners
Shuts all the doors tight, it keeps me inside
You chase me but you slow down when I stop
and you lock your door when I come back around

Chorus
