The Classic Crime – The Precipice lyrics

[VERSE 1]
I wish I could play the violin
I'd play 'til tears rolled down your cheek and chin
And if you sang along
We could write the saddest song

[VERSE 2]
Sometimes I indulge my every whim
And piece-by-piece I build the cell I'm in
But I only stay here long enough
To write the saddest song

[CHORUS]
I dreamt I stood on a hill that I wished was a mountain
To look back on all my accomplishments
Well they must have been small because I couldn't seem to find them
So I took a leap off of the precipice

[VERSE 3]
I wish I could play piano well
I'd hit the keys that make your spirit swell
And if you sang along
We could write the saddest song

[BRIDGE]
Whatever the cost
Whether it works out or not
Whatever the cost
Whether it works out or not
I'll follow you with my heart

Whatever the cost (Sometimes I indulge my every whim)
Whether it works out or not (And piece-by-piece I build the cell I'm in)
Whatever the cost (But I only stay here long enough)
Whether it works out or not (To write the saddest song)
I'll follow you with my heart

[CHORUS]
I dreamt I stood on a hill that I wished was a mountain
To look back on all my accomplishments
Well they must have been small because I couldn't seem to find them
So I took a leap off of the precipice
