lyrics

soft touch of the lips
not quite what you’d call a kiss
but they say the build up beats the act
soft brush of the hands
makes me forget who i’ve been
drunk on you and blurring facts

and i know
how this will always go
and for once i can see
the future right in front of me

give it two months
and we’ll have wasted our i love you’s
the butterflies will all have died
but we’re both too stubborn to leave
it’s a cycle that always repeats
with me

give it two months
and i’ll have written songs about you
the inspiration well has dried
but i’ll be on hands and knees
trying to find the last poetry

i see you in pink
but i’m careful not to blink
because any second the filter could fall
and when i open up my eyes
i’ll get that always harsh surprise
that you’re not who i thought you were at all

and i know
how this is bound to go
pessimism’s ruining me
how can we start when the end’s all i see

give it two months
and we’ll have wasted our i love you’s
the butterflies will all have died
but we’re both too stubborn to leave
it’s a cycle that always repeats
with me

give it two months
and i’ll have written songs about you
the inspiration well has dried
but i’ll be on hands and knees
trying to find the last poetry
