lyrics

When I need action, that's the way
The spirits bang on my ribcage
And say let me out
Please, just for a day
I can hold you, and then our hearts
Will fog up the skin and the sweaters between them
But that's as far
As they're gonna get tonight

Because as close as we can stray
When I look in your eyes
A speck of dust remains in the way

I want so bad to hear with your ears
And show you what I see but there's no way
So I'll send you words
Telegrams of the tongue
It's all so chaste, for our bodies
To conduct an affair on our behalf
How can we be sealed in
When it sure feels like there's a draft

But as close as we can stray
When I look in your eyes
A speck of dust remains in the way

You can give me your ring
Maybe never leave
Even in the temptingest of times
But it only takes a pinch to remind us both
Your pain is not my pain, I'm afraid

So I don't want to bring to bring you down
Or to convince you you're alone
But somehow I miss you
Even though you're right here at home

As close as we can stray
When I look in your eyes
A speck of dust remains in the way
