Don't Swallow the Cap Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Gold light breaks behind the houses
I don't see what's strange about this
Tiny bubbles hang above me
It's a sign that someone loves me
I can hardly stand upright
Hit my head upon the light
I have faith but don't believe it
It's not there enough to leave it
Everything I love is on the table
Everything I love is out to sea
I have only two emotions
Careful fear and dead devotion
I can't get the balance right
Throw my marbles in the fight
I see all the ones I went for
All the things I had it in for
I won't cry until I hear
Cause I was not supposed to be here
Everything I love is on the table
Everything I love is out to sea
I'm not alone
I'll never be
Into the bone
I'm evergreen
I'm tired, I'm freezing, I'm dumb
When it gets so late I forget everyone
I need somewhere to stay
Don't think anybody I know is awake

Calm down, it's alright
Keep my arms the rest of the night
When they ask what do I see
I say a bright white beautiful heaven hangin over me
I'm not alone, I'll never be
and to the bone I'm evergreen
And if you want (dead seriously)
To see me cry
(Don't swallow the cap)
Play Let it Be
(Pat yourself on the back)
Or "Nevermind"
(Dead seriously)
Is it time to leave, is it time to think about
What I want to say to the girls at the door
I need somewhere to be
But I can't get around the river in front of me
Calm down, it's alright
Leave my arms the rest of the night
When they ask what do I see
I say a bright white beautiful heaven hangin over me
I'm not alone, (dead seriously)
I'll never be
(Don't swallow the cap)
Into the bone, (pat yourself on the back)
I'm evergreen, (dead seriously)
And if you want, (dead seriously)
To see me cry, (don't swallow the cap)
Play Let it Be
(Pat yourself on the back)
Or nevermind
(Dead seriously)
