The Airborne Toxic Event Bride And Groom Lyrics

This city is haunted by the ghost of failure

I am one and you are one

We’ve spent this whole time on the run

From a lie that I told

That you closed your eyes and you chose to believe

So now you ask me for honesty

Just to take a second, breathe

I’m not good enough for you

You were never good enough to me

No one’s ever good enough to be

Or have something so naïve

When I broke my hand on your car

When you told me you were leavin’

And I begged for your forgiveness

My broken fingers bleedin’

My heavy heart repeatin’, afraid,

Just stay here with me

Then you took your clothes off instead

And you danced around my room

Don’t worry, you said,

‘Cause the end is coming soon

And we’ll meet again someday

And we’ll toast these stunning ruins

For the bride I’ll never be

And the groom

Now I picture you like snowflakes

Like desperate pouring rain

Like the beating of the drum

In the parade of the insane

You are the whisper in my ear

When I wake and no one’s here

There’s just the echo of your name

So now you ask me for honesty

I close my eyes, breathe,

I’m the one who always is

So ready to leave

To be a distant memory

To be a ship disappearing in the sea

And I crashed upon your rocks

When I heard your voice singing

And I begged for your love

With my busted ears ringing

My hopeful heart repeating

You are more than the promise of the sea

Then you took your clothes off instead

And you danced around my room

Don’t worry, you said,

‘Cause the end is coming soon

And we’ll meet again someday

And we’ll toss the cursed ruins

Of the bride I’ll never be

And the groom
