  • I'm in envy of addicts
    You're obsessed with stars
    Don't don't you sounds so excited
    You're showing me your vanity
    So whisper it once just a little bit
    C'mon whisper it twice I can't stand to see
    The spotlight shine one more night
    It's killing me to see you

    Just tie the rope and kick the chair
    Just leave me hanging there
    Gasping for air yeah
    Don't mind me three feet from the ceiling

    You'd rather watch me drown
    Than see your hands get wet
    You took the plot from stage to screen
    And turned it to an epic scene
    So whisper it once tell me again
    C'mon whisper it twice I can't stand to see
    My whole life flash before my eyes
    When I'm with you there's no point in breathing
    No point in breathing

    Just tie the rope and kick the chair
    Just leave me hanging there
    Gasping for air yeah
    Don't mind me three feet from the ceiling
    And I think I know (whoah oh oh)
    Why you never get too close
    It's cause you're too scared to
    When I'm with you there's no point in breathing

    So so you run away for no apparent reason
    'Cause you and I are changing with the seasons
    You give me an answer as to why you're leaving
    The table's full, nobody's been dealing
    So fold your hand c'mon and fold your hand

    Just tie the rope and kick the chair
    Just leave me hanging there
    Gasping for air yeah
    Don't mind me three feet from the ceiling
    And I think I know (whoah oh oh)
    Why you never get too close
    It's cause you're too scared to
    When I'm with you there's no point in breathing Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
