There’s a string of lights hanging up at your place
The same street
They’re more colorful than I remember, this year
Tip toe in the room, the party is here just for you, you know
We are hiding to celebrate
We don’t have to choose our ways
Our ways tell us, “time has run short.”
Skeleton’s walking down the catwalk
Covered in ink
And I don’t know what they sound like
The volume’s off and I don’t mind
I hear the static of my neighbor’s breathing this time
He holds his breath while I look up
He looks back
This is not the time for him, but he is still breathing
You know you have sold yourself short
And I can feel it creeping in
You’ve sold yourself short
And now you can’t stop dreaming it out
It’s useless
God writes me letters in words too small to read
The other leaves me cards to guess what could’ve been
And what I can’t foresee
I’ve got a bad brain, it’s no good
You’ve sold yourself short
Don’t make me your lights in there
Hang me somewhere else
