lifeblood: songs: lyrics: box of tissues


i put a box of tissues
by
my bed
cause i knew that i'd be up forever
waiting for
you
you

i left the light on in the hall
(i left the light on in the hall)
cause i imagined you falling
when you finally come
home
home

and anybody with a heart
would've been alone
but you brought her

and anybody with a brain
would've left you then
but i stayed
i stayed

i gathered all the photographs
(i gathered all the photographs)
in the hope of taking one long
steamy
bath alone
alone

all the water on my skin
(all the water on my skin)
could not wash away the years of
tryin' to get
in
in

and anybody with a heart
would've been alone
but you brought her

and anybody with a brain
would've left you then
but i stayed
i stayed

i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
even though
(i stayed awake)
even though my love life was
(i stayed awake)
fast asleep and my heart
(i stayed awake)
was breakin' to
(i stayed awake)
a million pieces
(i stayed awake)
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
i stayed awake
even though
(i stayed awake)
even though my love life was
(i stayed awake)
fast asleep and my heart
(i stayed awake)
and was breakin' to
(i stayed awake)
a million pieces
(i stayed awake)
i stayed
(i stayed awake)
(i stayed awake)
i stayed
(i stayed awake)
(i stayed awake)
i stayed
(i stayed awake)
(i stayed awake)
i stayed

i put a box of tissues
by
my bed
cause i knew that i'd be up forever
waiting for
you
you
