What a terrible time to fall in love
surrounded by death
If I can’t keep you safe from harm
Why should I risk my neck?

This isn’t for them
This is for you
You were the only thing
keeping me on the ground
I was only king as long as
You were my queen
This isn’t my dream but
I always loved our pillow talk

what a terrible time to be alone
on my side of the bed
Close my eyes and I'm at home
your arms around my neck
you always pulled the blankets off of me
I pulled the rug from under you
now I'm drowning in these sheets

I keep thinking I'll wake up
and see you getting dressed
I smell your perfume
but it's gone so fast
