lyrics

You should have given me more notice
I didn’t know until the house was filled with flames
Smoke pushing under doors and windows
While I drank and slept and dreamed away the day

I had no way of telling that the nightmares in mind were true
I had no way of telling that I was suffocating without you

You are the cleanest air I’ll ever breathe
I let you carve your shape inside of me
I’ll make you promise that you’ll never leave

You took me swimming in the ocean
Setting fears aside, I let you take the lead
And though I couldn’t touch the bottom
I followed you relentless to the sea

I had no way of telling that the current was relentless too
I had no way of telling that I’d nearly drowned there without you

You are the cleanest air I’ll ever breathe
I let you carve your shape inside of me
I’ll make you promise that you’ll never leave

And everything is clear when you’re not standing over here

You are the cleanest air I’ll ever breathe
I let you carve your shape inside of me
I made you promise that you’d never leave, you’d never leave
I made you promise that you'd never leave
