lyrics

i was watching you pour another drink
i thought maybe that you’d admit to it
i thought it would make you talk

you don’t say much when you come home at night
I start to think about all the things that you might hide
and what you could really do

in my dream I was on the witness stand
pressed for truth i was raising my right hand
my left, it just points to you

you’re on trial, the jury must assume
your innocence but they’re asking me for proof
of all the things you could do

at night it comes to me
the pieces click
and it wakes me while i sleep
your eyes were closed, my eyes are open and i think
“why couldn’t i just leave it alone?”
I turn it over and over and now i see a speck in you
though i don’t want to

it’s in the way that you move around the house
like your body’s possessed by something else
your feet, they don’t make a sound

since it happened you don’t eat enough
you avert your eyes and you’re shying from my touch
is it all the guilt that’s making you lose yourself?

at night you come to me
you whisper words
confessing while i sleep
you couldn’t see my eyes were open when you said
“why couldn’t you just leave it alone?”
you say it over and over and now i see the rest of you
the ice has cracked
and i don’t know
what i would really do
without you

at night you come to me...

at night you come to me
you cut my throat
and bleed me in my sleep
your eyes are wet, my eyes are open while you scream
“why couldn’t you just leave it alone?”
you said it over and over and now i know the reset of you
my vision fades to black
in darkness dies the the truth
