Local Natives – Breakers lyrics


Waiting for my words to catch like I'm trying to strike a match that's
Soaking wet,
See-through skull, see-through skin,
Leave all the lights on, can't see out but they see in,
Stare down my nose, watching the color drain from my eyes,
Cold cereal and tv before I go to sleep

Breathing out, hoping to breathe in, I know nothing's wrong but I'm not

"No, I know, I know, I know how far," I told myself
Maybe I'll believe it from somebody else ((x2))

Breathing out, hoping to breathe in, I know nothing's wrong but I'm not
I can't let it happen, just let it happen,
Just don't leave so much, don't leave so much
