I don’t need you today Is vanity something that distance could change? I’m taking pictures of trains Maybe they’ll help me escape I don’t care for your pain But I’m hoping in autumn my feelings will change You’re tracking our steps in the grey While I’m counting the breaths I exchange Tear this building down Wade through every sound And I’m starting up some kind of war Was fidelity fading before? Sing something cynical, lull me to sleep I’m a king in a queen bed But it’s too big for me You know I loved Tennessee And the hours we spent driving south through the trees And I’ll miss New Orleans But I’m longing for nights not so clean And are you still living presently? Or stuck in plans made for someone you were supposed to be? If you’re lost inside the home that we made Lean on walls like advice that you gave When you found yourself a stranger to your ways You thought you knew who you’d become And that would make you at peace But the steps that you mapped out led you astray And when you did the math You forgot that things change How many lovers will you pick up today? How many others will you pull in to take my place when I'm too far away? 'Cause I’m too far away
There’s an inn by the bay where I’m meeting you A peculiar place for a rendezvous I’m struggling with shutting the bathroom door It keeps getting stuck on the motel floor And it seems you feel familiar somehow Your aux cord was broken until now Feel how the room shifts Watch how the sound devours it We’re static inside it all Listen, we both know This evening is electric, so We'll follow and we’ll find out where it goes Our voices are drowned by a room in red So we’re using alternate senses to speak instead And on the beach, we're holding sand and silence by the sea But first you’re wondering if it’s alright Delay your flight, for one more night Tell me how you fixed the sound in your car And show me, is Fullerton far?
