Lyrics:

cold room
all the dust is dancing as i'm
consumed
by these glaring promises
let's see if they're true
it'll probably fall through,
(cause) that's what you always do

warm sheets
grasping at the imprint of
your heat
and i can't pretend that you're
still here with me
more than just a memory
(cause) you always leave

bring back the night
bring back your arms holding me tight
cause when the day comes
it'll be black and white
and i can't start this whole thing anew
(cause) that's what i always do

this time,
i've finally learned my lesson, and i'm
resigned
to asking all the questions
and drawing a line
i was searching for the light
but it was always mine

bring back the night
bring all my dreams to the bed where i lie
cause when the day comes
it'll be black and white
and i've gotta see this thing through
(cause) it's what i always do

cold room
all the dust is clearing and i'm
brand new
i remember waking so
sure that i knew
now it's slightly out of view
and my heart is black and blue
and i don't remember where i'm running to
but if i keep on waiting
maybe you'll come to
or maybe i won't do
what i always do
