lyrics

You fell in love with a dead girl
Her photographs are strewn across our bed
Her image fills your eyes and you cannot see
What’s growing in the part of me once dead

Oh, you fell in love with a dead girl
Her ashes long ago sunk in the sea
Her melodies and words are like a whirlpool
Dragging you down a mystery

And I won’t be the lock on your cage
And I can’t be the ink on your page
These words are not the words from your heart
The ice is melting and breaking us apart

You fell in love with a dead girl
Her photographs are strewn across our bed
Her image fills your eyes and you cannot see
What’s growing in the part of me once dead

And I won’t be the lock on your cage
And I can’t be the ink on your page
These words are not the words of your heart
The ice is melting and breaking us apart

You fell in love with a dead girl
Her ashes long ago sunk in the sea
Her melodies and words are like a whirlpool
Dragging you down a mystery

And I won’t be the lock on your cage
And I can’t be the ink on your page
These words are not the words from your heart
The ice is melting and breaking us apart
melting and breaking us apart
melting and breaking us apart
melting and breaking us apart
