lyrics

Let's do a slow dance
have every step another year
You'll feed me pain and I'll
surrender you the left side of my brain
and every other time
I hear someone say your name
a burning ache will light up
some part of myself I haven't saved

I stayed up nights building labyrinths for you
building labyrinths so you could find me

I knew I'd find you
standing apart a jury of your peers
flashing a noose woven of fine lace
and illegal cigarettes
I sent ahead to reserve my place
among your suitcase and your fears
But now they wait upon the tablecloth,
and dinner will be set

I stayed up nights building labyrinths for you
building labyrinths so you could find me

The last smile I saw you give
was on the death of your freedom
Looking manicly out the rear window
behind me into the dark
You said you'd left your evidence everywhere
the hounds were soon to come
It's sad us runners never get a holiday,
no one would trust us to take part

I stayed up nights building labyrinths for you
building labyrinths so you could find me

So I'll go on stumbling around this earth
trying to face my fears
Only to know some vague details of the
ones you've since gathered up
Until you burst into a fit of promises
waving hats far and near
and somehow you will still seem innocent,
and say it was all bad luck

I stayed up nights building labyrinths for you
building labyrinths so you could find me

Your cherry face is on a paper plane
lying at my bedside
And in my brain next to all the nonsense
you thought was intuitive
I know you will no longer talk me,
though you never told me why
Some kind of karma case you must make alone,
so without you we might live

I stayed up nights building labyrinths for you
building labyrinths so you could find me

I spent that winter alone freezing to death
north of here in a broken town
like an old man stuck in the attic who
wont leave his memories
studyin' a photograph of you, to see
if I could make your darkness out
distilled from deaths you've yet to see,
so you say, so you'll make it be.
