Lyrics

I've tried beer and I’ve tried poison
I sleep standing up, it's all for you
Brand new static on the same old station
New rotation for the same old tune

I look at you trough a hole in a leaf
From your eyes green wide to the tops of your feet
And I take / and put it / in my pocket
Now I got you
Got you

I've woke up to nights of long blue murder
And I’ve thrown days away, it's all for you
I wanted box of paper dolls for Christmas
Pick the prettiest / pretend it's you

I look at you trough a hole in a leaf
From your eyes green wide to the tops of your feet
And I take / and put it / in my pocket
Now I got you
Got you

Dry your face in the sand on the beach
With two seashell eyes broken sand dollar teeth
It's a picnic / and a nightmare / loving someone
But I've got you
Got you

Candles light the scene of my closet shrine
They ... figurines in a plain where you are mine

I look at you trough a hole in a leaf
From your eyes green wide to the tops of your feet
And I take / and put it / in my pocket
Now I got you
Got you

I don't pray for much, that's what I’m getting
Talking at the moon, a face like you
Every pill I take wears some resemblance
Takes me to a places where dreams are true

I swallow you with a smile on my face
Then I hold you warm in a summer place
It's a picnic / and a nightmare / loving someone
But I've got you
It's a picnic / and a nightmare / loving someone
But I've got you
Got you now
