I'm talking in my sleep once again
I've been trying to hold it in
this foolish heart lonesome as it is
trying to crawl onto my sleeve
but I won't let it be seen
for if I do it will die

So let's keep fighting and trying to hide it
lying and denying I don't believe
our lives are two ten inch strings
tied together at the ends
wrapped up at the start
and only once more
at the end

But I want something in the space between
oh give me something in the space between
I know there's something in the space between
you and me

These empty green and brown bottles
that I seem to find by the pair will do just fine
to serve as vaults for all the words
of tear and fear
for however many years

I know you from before we were born
and I know you feel the same as I do
I can see it in your eyes
so terrified
to live a life you cant untie
and would you use a knife
to say goodbye
