lyrics

hey
don't wanna talk about it today
don't go on about it
oh
we lost the sight
and we didn't write our names across the sky

now
i wanna have it out
don't know how
all i know is that i cried
and we didn't write our names across the sky

maybe if we wrote it on the walls it could be different
when the freedom's up
comes resistance
in a drunken lust you showed me craving
but we didn't write our names to taste it

we fall
we crawl
we fall
we crawl
now our knees are raw
we probably should get up off the ground

god
why won't you give me what i want?
all i wanted was it all
but i guess i'll have to settle down

this might be trite
i want to die
cause we didnt write our names across the sky

then we tried to put it up in paint instead of pencil
came off on our clothes
they looked horrible on ya
gorgeous on the floor, though
hold me baby
and write our names for heaven's sake

come on baby
draw it on your lips and trace it with your tongue
tastes so familiar, yeah
because you know me baby
and we didn't write our names

hey
don't wanna talk about it
wait, look around
the sky is falling
we didnt write our names across it
