Lyrics

The world hides like a smile behind your hand
I became hard and cold, your smile became quicksand
I don't know what city I'm dialing your number from
I don't know if you'll be there or if I'll ever get home

I just took my two sleeping pills
Now I'm like a bridegroom standing at the altar

I'm not innocent but I'm bled dry
And I'm stuck wide awake with no dreams in my eyes
Do your worst
I'm sure that it couldn't even scratch the crust
Of a case study of a life without trust

I just took my two sleeping pills
Now I'm a like bridegroom standing at the altar
Waiting to embrace my new life
with all the love in my heart
Waiting like a bridegroom standing at the altar

And everyday I meet more people that I'll forget
And everyday I become more like someone
that you should forget

I just took my two sleeping pills
Now I'm like a bridegroom standing at the altar
Waiting for you to slip your ring around my finger
