lyrics

i've been keeping secrets
of where i go at night
after you've gone to sleep
tucked away in your dreams
i leave this place for somewhere dark
a place i'm scared for you to see
but i'm not getting any better
so i decided to come clean

we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
and as hard as i fucking try
these thoughts won't leave my head

then the morning comes
my mind fills with an ancient comfort
we can actually laugh about it
"how crazy they must have been"
but we go our separate ways
a goodbye sealed with a kiss
a promise we'll both be missed
and hopefully we'll return

we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
if there's no heaven then there's no hell
but what does that mean for us?

what makes a couple decide tonight's the night?
they left a note "please don't tell the kids"
that their last loving memory is sitting in the car
turning up the radio and listening to their song


we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
and if you should happen to go first
i'll pray there's a god to help me
please god, help me
