  • Let me take your hand
    I'm shaking like milk
    Turning
    Turning blue
    All over the windows and the floors
    Fires outside in the sky
    Look as perfect as cats
    The two of us
    Together again
    But it's just the same
    A stupid game

    But I don't care if you don't
    And I don't feel if you don't
    And I don't want it if you don't
    And I won't say it
    If you won't say it first

    You think you're tired now
    But wait until three
    Laughing at the Christmas lights
    You remember from December
    All of this then back again
    Another girl
    Another name
    Stay alive but stay the same
    It's just the same
    A stupid game

    But I don't care if you don't
    And I don't feel if you don't
    And I don't want it if you don't
    And I won't say it
    If you won't say it first

    You can't even see now
    So you ask me the way
    You wonder if it's real
    Because it couldn't be rain
    Through the right doorway
    And into the white room
    It used to be the dust that would lay here
    When I came here alone

    Doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo
