Lyrics

What do I owe you?
My heart is murmuring
Doesn't seem worth what it takes
Doesn't seem worth what it takes
Do I owe you silence for your heart beating habit
Well, you can have it
You can have it
I'm better off alone
I'm better off dead

Walking around on eggshells
Walking around on my hands
Yes I still love you
But I don't want you back
Whatever it is I owe you, I'll pay it back
I'll pay it back

How come you don't remember
Silences that lasted hours
Dreamless nights long and sour
Souls drained of candle power
And me to hang on like lights left out
With only more silence to greet the dawn
Well you can have it
Well you can have it

Yes I still love you
But I don't want you back
Whatever I owe you, I'll pay it back
I'll pay it back
I'll pay it back
I'll pay it back

And if I owe you nothing
Well then will you stop trying
to squeeze the water or the wine
from the fist where my heart used to be

Also appears on
