    Lyrics

    Here's to you, the same chords that I stole
    From a song that I once heard
    The same melody I borrowed from the void
    I'd rather observe than structure a narrative
    The characters are thin; the plot does not develop
    It ends where it begins

    It's on the screen, in paperbacks
    In section 8 and cul-de-sacs
    Electro haikus and drunk sonnets
    Are moving me along

    You cut my hair
    You left red ink everywhere
    Do my hands tell a story?
    Is it boring?

    You cut my hair
    You left red ink everywhere
    Do my hands tell a story?
    Is it boring you?

    What I'd give to force your sigh
    What I'd give to see you cry
    What I'd give for your caress
    To see your blue cotton dress
    Balled up on the floor
    Certain memories are the problem
    Certain drunken lines are the shame
    Seven hundred miles and four years
    I can't fight the flame; it burns
    And it burns, it burns, it burns

    You cut my hair
    You left red ink everywhere
    Do my hands tell a story?
    Is it boring?

    You cut my hair
    You left red ink everywhere
    Do my hands tell a story?
    Is it boring you?

    Was I wishing on satellites?
    Tell me how you've been doing that trick
    I'm just wishing the flame away
    Now I'm wishing the flame away
