lyrics

i travelled to you today
fell in love with the bodies on the train
fell in love with the dying and dead cities
that i passed along the way

you met me with your arms outstretched
like mosquito netting, still unable to catch
all the salt in your words that seeps right into
every little scratch
you'd think that by now you'd have fixed that

but i ain't been feeling myself these days
caught in the glare of your endless gaze
i never wanted it to stay

"come meet me today" he said
and i winced at my readiness
shoved it all down my throat
till i said with a steady voice "no"

he's a blister on my foot
he keeps me from moving forward
i cannot take one step without a reminder
of what we did and what you've done
you call me up and speak in tongues and

i ain't been feeling myself these days
caught in the glare of your endless gaze, all day

how nice to rely on you
as a distant memory, not someone who lives and breathes somewhere
how nice to look into the eyes of the people that i meet
and not see you in there
i swear, i cared.
did i care?
did i care?

well i ain't been feeling myself these days
caught in the glare of your endless gaze
