lyrics

I just won’t stop by unannounced anymore
You won’t call me to bitch, I can’t crash on your floor
And when I set the table it’s never for four
You should never been taken that way

So I don’t want to go out to any old place
All our old rambilngs, no need to retrace

‘Cause the one thing I won’t find, I won’t find your face
You’re gone and I’m lost in the fray

But we’ll still go dancin’ on the backs of my eyes
You’re the star of my dreams and it ain’t no surprise
Just guide me and teach me ‘till I realize
It’s a thin veil between you and me
Just a thin veil between you and me

The clothes in your closet, we take down and fold
They don’t smell like you now, they’re rigid and cold
If I’d a had one wish, we all a grown old
In youth in our hearts you’ll remain


But we’ll still go dancin’ on the backs of my eyes
You’re the star of my dreams and it ain’t no surprise
Just guide me and teach me ‘till I realize
It’s a thin veil between you and me
Just a thin veil between you and me

I guess I’ve no use for that off ramp no more
I don’t need to buy beer or to stop at the store
All our stupid adventures I swore there’d be more
You were gone when I looked back again

Let’s never stop dancin’ on the backs of my eyes
Don’t you dare leave my dreams for some other guy’s
Just teach me and tease me ‘till I realize
It’s a thin veil between you and me
Just a thin veil between you and me
