lyrics

How I wish
I could tell you all the right things to make you feel alright.
And I wish
I could be all the best things to bring you back to life.

Talk to me, boy.
Tell me what’s on your mind.
How am I supposed to know what to do about you
If you never let me inside?
Yeah.

Can the heart not open up, without first being cut?
And can you love so much, without running out of luck?
(Without getting fucked?)

Goodnight, distant lover, XO.
“Why distant?” you ask.
Well, we’re not exactly close.

’Cause we don’t tell each other shit
’Cause we don’t see the use
In a guilt-tripping hullabaloo.

And we don’t tell each other shit
’Cause it’s not worth it,
But if only we knew.

’Cause out of what you feel and what you say,
Which will affect how her heart sways?
And out of what you say and what you do,
Honey, which is telling the truth?

(Goodnight, distant lover, XO.
“Why distant?” you ask.
Well, we’re not exactly close.

Goodnight, distant lover, XO.
You keep my bed warm
And my heart in the cold.
Yeah.)

Little do you know that you’re now a part
Of the melodies in my heart.
Little do you know...
