The Venetia Fair – Let Me Explain lyrics

Oh god what happened to you? I barely recognize your face.
But we're past this. (just move past this).
Oh god, I could spend the night tryin' to catch my shadow
"But it's time to grow up" she said "some things are simply out of reach"
Don't you dare stop pushing me away.

And it's a thin line between mistress and lover
It's the same bullshit line that says that this is forever
It's the same line they draw when you take two to the chest
It's the same line that flattens after cardiac arrest
And it's a line rehearsed that gets forgotten on stage
It's the line on your skin they cut so you never age
It's the same line that separates your brain from your heart
It's the line that you did that plans to tear you apart.

Oh god what happened to you? I barely recognize your face.
But we're past this. (just move past this).
Oh god, I could spend the night tryin' to catch my shadow
"But it's time to grow up" she said "some things are simply out of reach"
Don't you dare stop pushing me away.

And he said that he thinks that he feels like he's wasting all his time
But he can't help wond'ring if he needs it all And he said

"You wanna talk about wasting time?
This isn't who I am, and it isn't who I'm ever going to be
Life is staring me right in the fuckin' face not just
Breathing down my neck and I barely recognize it. "

He said. He said. He said. He said. He said. He said "The keys decay"

Oh god what happened to you? I barely recognize your face.
But we're past this. (just move past this).
Oh god, I could spend the night tryin' to catch my shadow
"But it's time to grow up" she said "some things are simply out of reach"
Don't you dare stop pushing me away.

Pushing me away. The satellite accelerates and I think I finally reached escape veloci-ty.
I still remember how it burned.
I couldn't close my eyes long enough to miss how it glowed.
And now I feel and see it each time we're close.
The sun just isn't bright enough. Fuck.
I get lost every second I find it.
I lose touch every time that I feel this.
The keys decay. I get lost every second I feel this.
The keys decay. I lose touch every time.

Oh god what happened to you? I barely recognize your face.
But we're past this. (just move past this).
Oh god, I could spend the night tryin' to catch my shadow
"But it's time to grow up" she said "some things are simply out of reach"
Don't you dare stop pushing me away.
