  • Sunshine, there ain't a thing that you can do that's gonna ruin my night
    (But, there's just something about)
    This dizzy dreamer and her bleeding little blue boy
    Licking your fingers like you're done and,
    You've decided there is so much more than me
    And baby, honestly it's harder breathing next to you, I shake
    I brought a gun and as the preacher tried to stop me
    Hold my heart it's beating for you anyway

    What if I can't forget you?
    I'll burn your name into my throat
    I'll be the fire that'll catch you
    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
    None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole

    Nobody prays for the heartless
    Nobody gives another penny for the selfish
    You're learning how to taste what you kill now
    Don't mind me, I'm just reaching for your necklace
    Talking to my mom about this little girl from Texas

    What if I can't forget you?
    I'll burn your name into my throat
    I'll be the fire that'll catch you
    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
    None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole

    Just give her back to me
    You know I can't afford the medicine that feeds what I need

    So, baby, what if I can't forget you? (What if I can't forget you?)
    Collide invisible lips like a shadow on the wall,
    And just throw, oh no
    You can't just throw me away

    So, what if I can't forget you?
    I'll burn your name into my throat
    I'll be the fire that'll catch you
    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
    What if I don't even want to?

    Oh,
    Oh, oh
    Oh
    Oh, oh
    Oh
    Oh, oh

    What if I can't forget you?
    I'll burn your name into my throat
    I'll be the fire that'll catch you
    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
    None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole

    Just give her back to me
    You know I can't afford the medicine that feeds what I need
    So, baby, what if I can't forget you? (What if I can't forget you?)
    I'd better learn to live alone

    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
    What's so good about? What's so good about?
    What's so good about picking up the pieces?
