A Lot Like Birds – Your Ex Marked My Spot lyrics

"I'm standing here in pieces, and you're having delusions of grandeur!"

Just for tonight,
Can we leave this bed?
Cause I'm been alone here waiting for sometime
But she's been screaming all night
All night

And even if it wasn't what you planned it'd be
You'll still be here when August turns to April
And asks me where I've been,
Well here I am (well here I am...)

(I'd stay for you)
Well I thought I might,
Just watch as your trepid little footsteps
Will synchronize with mine
(I'd stay for you)
So I know that at least we still have time
Yeah at least I still got time

(I know you think)
Oh but forever's a beautiful word when it's spoken
(But it's not)
Two inches from another's face
(Some say love hurts)
And oh they all keep telling me that nothing's permanent
(Forever)
As if it could be any consolation

Just for tonight,
Can we leave this bed?
Cause I'm been alone here waiting for sometime
But she's been screaming all night
All night

And even if it wasn't what you planned it'd be
You'll still be here when August turns to April
And asks me where I've been,
Well here I am (well here I am...)

(I'd stay for you)
Well I'll grow old, and die in a house alone
And you won't know
(I'd stay for you)
And I stayed here
Worked at this job for forty years
I'm still here.

Go!
Shit...
