She Lays Down

Album: I Like It When You Sleep... (2016)
  • And she lays down on her bedroom floor
    The chemicals that make her laugh
    Don't seem to be working anymore
    She tries her best, but it hurts her chest
    And even though her sun is gone
    She lights like a child nevertheless

    My hair is brown, she's scared to touch
    And she just wants to feel something
    And I don't think that's asking for too much
    And when I go to sleep it's when she begins to weep

    She's appalled by not loving me at all
    She wears a frown and dressing gown
    When she lays down

    Well we got a plane, going to see my dad again
    She prayed that we fell from the sky
    Simply to immediate the pain
    Over the water, hmm
    Over terrain
    The engines all go bust, we turned to dust
    And I've no reason to complain, yeah
    And in the end, she chose cocaine
    But it couldn't fix her brain

    She's appalled oh she doesn't love me at all
    She wears a frown and dressing gown
    When she lays down

    That was it Writer/s: Matthew Timothy Healy
