Lyrics:

He's a complicated crazy one who carries an old soul
like the lottery, a winning ticket, the chance is less than a roll
but he slips his fingers through my hair when nobody's around
and we talk about things I actually give a damn about and I get carried in his sound

I really wanted to speak to you but I didn't have the words
and there is no winning anything when the game only hurtrs
It's a cop and robber type of chase a dream you'll soon deny
when it's coming down your face you'll find you know exactly why

It's a bittersweet, bittersweet type of feel
it smells like beer, it smells like fear upon the ground I used to know
where getting old, where getting cold and there I sit unknown
I paint faces on my walls so I don't feel so alone

I really wanted to touch your face
but my hands and lips where gone
emotionless with nothing left
then a simple simple song
between these lines that we crossed
when we where so dumb
who would have thought that we'd only become numb

Chorus

Bridge: He says come inside, one last time
like birds flying south before that winter lie
I go up the stairs, they spiral everywhere
to find that he's locked the door to get in there

Chorus

I'm a sucker, I'm a sucker, I'm a sucker for his love
I'll always feel it in grey until the colors bring me out
and if this is a comedy the joke will always be on me

Boy your the one I'm thinking of when I'm awake in my sleep
THE FACES UPON MY WALLS THEY NEVER SPEAK TO ME
