We saw the western coast
I saw the hospital
Nursed the shore line like a wound
We paint a lovers tryst
We're neither clear nor descript
We kept it safe and slow
The quiet things that no one ever knows

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals
(Repeat)

I contemplate the day we wed
Your friends were boring me to death
Your veil was ruined in the rain
By then you'd like to do without
There's nothing new to talk about
And though our kids are blessed
Their parents let them shoulder all the blame

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lowercases and capitals
(Repeat)

I...lie for...only you...
And I...lie well, hallelujah
I...lie for...only you...
And I... lie well, hallelujah

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals
(Repeat)
(I...lie for...only you...
And I...lie well, hallelujah)
