lyrics

the heat breathes your name
and i try to push you out
of my ears and my nerves,
nothing feels the same
and i'm trying and trying and
trying to follow these turns.
but i'm not one for useless games
and your cold eyes never stop piercing
and it burns

well i can't tell if it's better now 'cause
i still keep freaking out but
maybe one of these days
i'll find myself.
and i'm trying real hard to contain it
and i'm getting real tired and sick
of this shit,
maybe one of these days
i'll figure it out

the wind is like ice
when it kisses my cheek,
like a memory of you.
it's cold but it's nice,
and it's quite refreshing
like new flowers on a tomb.
but i don't like that way i get when
my heart's frozen in my chest and
i can't feel a thing.

well i can't tell if it's better now 'cause
i still keep freaking out but
maybe one of these days
i'll find myself.
and i'm trying real hard to contain it
and i'm getting real tired and sick
of this shit,
maybe one of these days
i'll figure it out

until now, i couldn't quite
put a finger on it,
but now,
my hands won't rest.
until now, i couldn't quite
put a finger on it,
but now,
my hands won't rest.

well i can't tell if it's better now 'cause
i still keep freaking out but
maybe one of these days
i'll find myself.
and i'm trying real hard to contain it
and i'm getting real tired and sick
of this shit,
maybe one of these days
i'll figure it out
