  • I wait, for you, in dusky avenues
    My skin, soaked through, the tree you nailed me to

    You wanted my heart, for it's little worth
    I was half your age, and I thought we were in love
    Then I found your car, but it was already burnt
    Your eyes from a stained glass window

    But you had my soul
    Standing in the cold
    Trying to get back home
    Frozen to the bone
    I wanted to know
    I wanted to know

    We ride, all night, make out in motel lights
    Your touch, and your kiss, Paris, even though all things

    You wanted my heart, for it's little worth
    I was half your age, and I thought we were in love
    Then I found your car, but it was already burnt
    Your eyes from a stained glass window

    But you had my soul
    Standing in the cold
    Trying to get back home
    Frozen to the bone
    I wanted to know
    I wanted to know

    You wanted my heart, for it's little worth
    I was half your age, and I thought we were in love
    Then I found your car, but it was already burnt
    It was covered in rust, someone got there first

    I was running away
    Because I thought we were in love
    Then I saw your eyes

    But they said it all
    Standing in the cold
    Trying to get back home
    Frozen to the bone
    I wanted to know
    Why I'm screaming in the dark
    My boyfriend won't call
    Standing in the cold
    I wanted to know
    I wanted to know Writer/s: EOIN GEORGE LOVELESS, RORY FRANCIS LOVELESS
