Will myself to fall asleep, pretend I'm not afraid of losing.
Reassurance gratifies for just one moment then you're gone.
With one phone call.
It's not that I don't think it's you, it's just the payoff never comes.
It's not that I want to be through, it's just you're gone.
Temperature of comfort's dropping, it takes less to quench desire.
Heartbeat slows and body stiffens with the chill.
Eyes are closed and lashes frosted, heart’s secure in hibernation.
We'll continue living through delivery.
Years go by and we're still frozen, pining for the days together.
I’d still call you often just to hear you breathe.
Years go by and we'll remember it takes time to thaw the bloodstream,
on the shelf together, we're invincible.
