Perfume And Promises

  • A crack in the smile
    But she's always in style while she waits
    Waving goodbye but she's too tired to cry and she's wasted
    A letter he wrote
    But it's far too expose so he throws it away
    The sound of regret as it's counting the steps back to safe

    I don't want to leave you with perfume and promises
    But we'll never know 'till we capture and bottle it
    'Cause wouldn't it be such a shame
    If all was wasted

    Not an inch of the room
    That isn't in bloom or in light
    So we drink 'till its dawn
    Every drip 'till it's gone and we're wasted
    It's a thing of the truth
    But we'll lie and we'll look for the perfect escape
    And the moment will go like melted snow in the rain


    Stay for another morning
    Study the curves on my face
    Stay even when we're unknowing
    Stay 'till they tear you away
