lyrics

I've got way too many doubts
And those that i can't live without
Sold my silence to a stranger
Who said i shouldn't think out loud

And i know how to toe the line
Of sitting pretty, pretty fine
And i know i could be your only
Knowing well you won't be mine

I sell myself short
A couple cents, or one month's rent
Some things you can't ignore
Mouthful of empty compliments
With one foot out the door
And the other in my bed
Red cheeks, don't speak, no
I don't want to miss you when you go

Give a little for a lot
Hyper aware of who i'm not
I wish i could be a daydream
Instead of only midnight thoughts

But i'll take what I can get
Knowing that you'll soon forget
The way the light hit when you saw me
Loses luster at sunset

I sell myself short
A couple cents, or one month's rent
Some things you can't ignore
Mouthful of empty compliments
With one foot out the door
And the other in my bed
Red cheeks, don't speak, no
I don't want to miss you when you go

I know she shattered your ribcage
And sent shivers down your spine
But if you ever learn to walk again
Please join, my marching line

I sell myself short
A couple cents, or one month's rent
Some things you can't ignore
Mouthful of empty compliments
With one foot out the door
And the other in my bed
Red cheeks, don't speak, no
I don't want to miss you when you go

And I worry that I worry way too much
Then I'm worried that I worried way too much
I don't want to let you let me go
But I don't want to miss you even so
