Burned Is The House by Alkaline Trio


It's like we both have just arrived here

Like we've just stepped off a plane in a new town

And the sun was out.

I was talking you would point your ear at me

Like i was making some sweet sound

You said "make it loud"

 

But we can never come back here again

We can only hope...

To forget.

 

Walked through a cemetery archway

Into a wood that hung so happily alone

But the words were all wrong.

You traded all my ill affections

For directions to a party across town.

You bring the house down.

 

But we can never go back there again

We can only hope.

 

So...

 

Burned is the house.

Gone is the street.

Here is the same disappointing retreat.

And i need it like hell if i'd lie to myself

To think i could live that life over again.

Where the cuts were like guilt

And the taste for your eyes

I say "we're up when i couldn't just say goodnight"

If you cry me a river you can baptize me in

I say "i guess that's it now i've fucking seen everything"

Woah's

 

You were the first real choice i would make

But we all make mistakes so...

 

Jumped overboard because the water's always greener

When the sun shines on the sea

Would you drown for me?

It's just as deep as you can make it

You tread water when you could stand on your knees

But don't pray to me.

Cause when the lamp ray's taken all it can

It will keep you dead.

 

But but

 

Burned is the house.

Gone is the street.

Here is the same disappointing retreat.

And i need it like hell if i'd lie to myself

To think i could live that life over again.

Where the cuts were like guilt

And the taste for your eyes

I say "we're up when i couldn't just say goodnight"

If you cry me a river you can baptize me in

I say "i guess that's it yeah i've fucking seen everything now"

 

Woah's

 

You were the first real choice i would make

You were the only one that i would take

Now you'll take til i go.

 

You were the first real choice i would make

But we all make mistakes

So...
