lyrics

your face is a melody I hum underneath my breath

on my way with the better part of today left

to show you life I know it will mean my death


and the warm wet nights

just like lips that linger

I walked and walked and never thought to stop

or blow it a kiss goodbye as it slipped through my fingers


and it doesn't make it any better

but It dont mean I have to care

it doesn't really change anything for me


on my way and i'm taking those baby steps

sweet are the sidewalks for which I have slept

to show you life I know it will mean my death

and the warm wet nights

just like lips that linger

I walked and I walked and never thought to stop

and blow it a kiss goodbye as it slip through my finger

and it would't make it any better

and it don't mean I have to care

I should be satisfied stealing the air I breathe


run with the tumbleweeds stuck in the gutter life

you belong to the bumblebees you belong to the butterflies
