  • My eyes are T-shirts, they're so easy to read
    I wear 'em for you but they're all about me
    They always say "I want you to take me home"
    They always say "I want you to leave me alone"
    My tongue's a bible in the drawer of a desk
    Leave it alone please, give it a rest
    You walk in the room like a blade in a cutter
    Some things, baby, are made for each other

    When I see you something sad goes missing
    I stop crying, lay down and listen
    I hear your voice and my heart falls together
    Please come back, baby, make me feel better

    My mind's a flashlight, flickering out
    The wires are fussy, the batteries are out
    My breath is an ocean that suddenly stops
    When you walk in the room, the temperature drops

    When I see you something sad goes missing
    I stop crying, lay down and listen
    I hear your voice and my heart falls together
    Please come back, baby, make me feel better
    Please come back, baby, make me feel better
    Please come back, baby, make me feel better Writer/s: Matthew D. Berninger
