The Sleep


LYRICS

Never
Lyrics by Laura Smith

It doesn’t only hurt for you
Are we coming to an end
I can see you hurt so well
I just can’t watch it all again

All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses I heard them all before
You never seem to want more

You’re so accepting of my faults
It somehow makes me twice as bad

Maybe I am just the girl
Maybe I am just the girl
Don’t you think that maybe I am just the girl
That you never should have

What is it worth to you
What is it worth to me

All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses I heard them all before
Am I ever worth more

All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses you never
All of your excuses I heard them all before
You never seem to want more


Again and Again
Lyrics by Laura Smith

Tell me this, why are you still here
I can’t believe, after all
I left you standing for years
Paid your fare, stayed by my side
Again and again
All for a no-show ride

Do you see something that I don’t
My heart’s in pieces
I can’t share, not that I won’t
Held your hope, maybe once or twice
Again and again and again and again

I’ve seen a glimpse of you
Playing it slowing
Again and again and again and again
Somewhere a glimpse of me
Passes you slowly
Again and again

Tell me now where do we begin
Can’t get back to the start
As much as we’d like to and then
Paid my fare, I’ll stay by your side
Again and again
Can I say I’ve even tried

Let me see something I have missed
My heart’s in pieces
I can’t bear every lost kiss
Lost your hope maybe once or twice
Again and again and again and again

I’ve seen a glimpse of you
Playing it slowing
Again and again and again and again
Somewhere a glimpse of me
Passes you slowly
Again and again

Can you say was I ever yours
Is it too late to try
Paid your fare, stayed by my side
Again and again
All of these tears we have cried

There is something we both share
All in pieces
Met your hope, maybe once or twice
Again and again and again and again

I’ve seen a glimpse of you
Playing it slowing
Again and again and again and again
Somewhere a glimpse of me
Passes you slowly
Again and again


Take Me
Lyrics by Laura Smith

Are you careful
When you look my way
Is it easy
All those words you say
Is it worth it
Dragging me along
Is it worth it
Do you feel anything at all

You can break me
You can take me
It’s where you want to go
Why don’t you take me

I am frozen here in time
Why don’t you take me
Just a little more and you’ll be mine
Go on and take me

Do you have it
Because I let you in
Do you practice
Each and every sin
Is it worth it
Coming here each day
Is it worth it
To never want to stay

You can break me
You can take me
It’s where you want to go
Why don’t you take me

I am frozen here in time
Why don’t you take me
Just a little more and you’ll be mine
Go on and take me

Are you sorry
It was you who made me fall
Are you able
To feel anything at all
Is it worth it
To whisper in my ear
Is it worth it
To watch me disappear


Boy of Blue
Lyrics by Laura Smith

Broken Boy
Keep to yourself
The secrets I see
Eating yourself
Tasting each one carefully
Not as good as it could be

Tasting each one
Sad and then
Doing it all over again
I am just a ghost of a girl
Looking into your little world

Behind your eyes
Take on your shape
Inside it all will break
Dance your dance
Plan your escape
Boy of blue
Always alone
Now they’ve become my own
Your secrets to the bone

13 since what happened then
I am here you reached the end
Through your eyes I still can see
Much better than it should be

Boy of blue
So much pain
Now you do it all over again
Never even an end for you
I hear you speak, speak the truth

Behind your eyes
Take on your shape
Inside it all will break
Dance your dance
Plan your escape
Boy of blue
Always alone
Now they’ve become my own
Your secrets to the bone

Behind…

Your eyes…


Pieces
Lyrics by Laura Smith

It is now familiar
This little game I play
I’m split down the middle
Because of anything you say

A lake of fire
Or a sea of sin
I’m diving in

I pick up the pieces
Like I knew I should
Put them all together
Never felt so good

Inch by inch I place them
Back where they belong
All those fragile pieces
Will be lost before too long

What is real or not real
What is just a fact
I inch my way across the line
And do my balance act

I survey the damage
Decide what I will keep
It’s a large collection
That carries me to sleep

A lake of fire
Or a sea of sin
I’m diving in

Break what has been broken
Fix but never heal
It’s time to face the angels
With all that I conceal
Sew it all together
By myself again
Miles and miles of thread to go
Before I reach the end

A lake of fire
Or a sea of sin
I’m diving in


That Part Of You
Lyrics by Laura Smith

As I wait for your return
When you arrive
What’s missing feels complete
We never speak and break the spell
We know what we have is our defeat

We’re entwined with silver threads
We’re dancing all around ourselves instead
But I may be breaking

The way you hold me almost hurts
I watch the other you that isn’t mine
Best to keep it to myself
Or will I say something this time?

We’re entwined with silver threads
We’re dancing all around ourselves instead
Can’t you see me breaking

What was easy now is harder
Than it was just yesterday
And what once seemed so familiar
Now is something you no longer say

That part of you that isn’t mine
Is no longer enough
