Drown you out
And left you with the sounds
Of spoiled good-nights
Replacing lullabies

How could they never notice
What they planted in your space
See you laughing in a picture
But I know what's out of frame

You barely cried
But you made it out alive
And I'm so proud
That you're in my hands now

If we grew up together
You would find it's not the same
I wanna jump inside that picture
And show you what you gave

If we can stay here long enough
We can play with bloody mary
Say her name into the dark
Activate our nerve endings

If we stay long enough
We can play with bloody mary
She can chase us though the dark
Activate our nerve endings

If we stay

I'll never let them get closer
Or shower you with any blame
Now we dance in our own picture
Where the rules have changed

If we can stay here long enough
We can play with bloody mary
Say her name into the dark
Activate our nerve endings

If we can stay here long enough
We can play with bloody mary
She can chase us though the dark
Activate our nerve endings

If we stay
Stay

    I love this song. In my eyes it's about the fronts we put on for the world. The image those who don't know you intimately think of your life, or your relationship. The internal struggles we all fight.
    Trying to overcome that struggle and brave your fears with imagined enemies.
