lyrics

by the end of the summer
you were so alive
and your essence seductive
as hope before it died
so we fell into winter
what a senseless fall
it was all i could do to feel the cold at all
and your instincts die
all cramped up inside
like barely breathing butterflies
and it split the sky
when her scent was mine
now you lose yourself as time goes by
kept her heartbeat under my thumb
as i drank her in
all the longing smeared like embers
on her skin
thought you'd made an impression
but i pushed your hand away
just another possession
destined to decay
and your instincts die
all cramped up inside
just like barely breathing butterflies
and it split the sky
when her scent was mine
now we lose ourselves as time goes by
