Dear lover I've been writing you letters
Since the day the knife was turned
And every one I throw in the fire
'Cause baby one day they won't burn

(Just like the sun set behind these eyelids, I'll never let this go)
Yeah but they will never know
(Maybe with time spent, we can get over it, I guess you'll let me know)
Just how far how far

Stay gold
You deserve better than this
And I
I'm a god damn wreck
Stay gold
We can clean up this mess
If you will let me call this home
And I don't even know if half of it's true
I buried all my hurt inside of you
Sew you back up and hope you pull through
If you will let me call this home

Dear brother I'm so sick of the venom
You're spitting at me when my back is turned
And every time I flirt with forgiveness
Well maybe one day I will learn

(Just like the sun set behind these eyelids, I'll never let this go)
Yeah but they will never know
(Maybe with time spent, we can get over it, I guess you'll let me know)
Just how far I will go

And every Judas knows just when to kiss the savior

Stay gold
You deserve better than this
And I
I'm a god damn wreck
Stay gold
We can clean up this mess
If you will let me call this home
And I don't even know if half of it's true
I buried all my hurt inside of you
Sew you back up and hope you pull through
If you will let me call this home

Lie until there's nothing left
Just half a pack of cigarettes
It burns on and on and on until you're gone
You're a shooting star
A heart attack
You fill my lungs, you paint them black
It goes on and on and on and on

(Woah)
(Woah)

Stay gold
You deserve better than this
And I
I'm a god damn wreck
Stay gold
We can clean up this mess
If you will let me let me let me
And I don't even know if half of it's true
I buried all my hurt inside of you
Sew you back up and hope you pull through
If you will let me call this home

Stay gold
You deserve better than this
Stay gold
You deserve better than this
Stay gold
You deserve better than this
And I
I'm a god damn wreck.
