lyrics

You’ve got a show tonight
where was my invite?
walked past that venue by mine
saw all your friends outside

what are the chances
when the curtain is drawn
you’ll even feel
my absence?

under that spotlight
that hot reddish hue
will you shine for them
like I did for you?

When I burned for you
tried to earn you in the dark
every intention I had was true
when you were stifling
our dwindling spark
why’d you have to turn your baby blue?


My boy
My half-light boy
with all your shame
always a flicker
not a flame

So coy
My telephone
never rings
to you am
I nothing?

Our memories
are they just ash to discard?
ash to discard
embers so charred?

Our memories
are they just ash to discard
and bury in your backyard?


Those women
who wouldn’t face you
Thought I was different
But I was just new

Broke no patterns
Have I not earned your words?
Cannot sway to your songs
that I have never heard

Cause I’m at home
unmoved like a stone
you made me cold
I don't trust no one no more

How foolish to think
you'd not let our stage sink
if not bond, what do you stand for?


My boy
My half-light boy
with all your shame
always a flicker
not a flame

So coy
My telephone
never rings
to you am
I nothing?

Our memories
are they just ash to discard
ash to discard
embers so charred

Our memories
Are they just ash to discard
and bury in your backyard?

Light the torch
Light the torch
light light light the torch
cause it’s burning me up
burning me alive
feeling this ignored
you did not mourn

Just buried in your backyard
buried in your backyard
I’m buried in your backyard
