The Classic Crime – You And Me Both lyrics

The guard rail is tempting me
Standing like a sentry to the left of me
It's guarding adventure that's certain to be
Life-threatening, life-threatening

I need a tragedy
To wake me from perpetual dream
The proverbial 'pinch me'
I'm so sick of sleeping
I'm so sick of sleeping

And you wonder why my eyes don't leave my phone (Oh oh oh, oh oh)
It's no wonder that you feel like you're alone (alone)
I think I need a new story
One where I take on the world
The one that I'm living is boring
It's killing you and me and both

The car crash in front of me
Pulls me back from deep and desperate fantasy
Snaps me wide awake to see the horrible scene
What's happening, what's happening?
Is this the tragedy I asked for?
Is this blood on my hands?
A consequence of my own war?
I'm so sick of sleeping
I'm so sick of needing more


And you watch
Every time
As I give myself to death and the next life [the life]
And I blindly deserve [discern]
The plot line you deserve


It's killing you and me and both
It's killing you and me and both
