last call and i'm still upright
it's just my luck

i didn't manage but i tried
is that enough

i know they said sometimes there's no stopping these things
but i think they're just giving up

so won't you come and set me free
i spent all night awake in bed replaying the same scene
i wasn't all i swore i'd be
i know i turned my back on you, i just couldn't bear to see

and i can write off each recurring dream as just another fluke
and smother every unsure thought like i know what to do
if i labored for the next ten years would that clear up my name
or is just one night to myself too much to ask of fate
maybe i can bring you back to life if i just say it's true
and maybe if i say it twice then i'll believe it too
and maybe if i say it twice then i'll believe it too

so won't you come and bury me
i spent the year chasing your ghost and now it's all i see
and if i'm not all i swore i'd be
then i can't keep on playing dumb, i know my hands aren't clean
