Heatmiser – Why Did I Decide To Stay? lyrics

Kept my coat on
While you put your empty arms around me
Kept my shirt on
And wrestled my memory down
When I put my arm around you
I had to hold my mand in place
I didn't move to keep you from feeling chased

Dropping off
You smile easy
What was I supposed to say?
Hits the ground
And it dies easy
Why did I decide to stay?

Looks like I should forget you now
Underneath the covers I'm not naked
Maybe you were never next to me
Does all recorded history start tomorrow morning?
Did you forget or were your kisses my final warning?

A spent bullet brought me down
Add me to the list you stopped with blanks
Or how about a rundown of the top 100
Where do I rank
Did I even make the list
Or did I make a big mistake?

Dropping off
You smile easy
What was I supposed to say
