Lyrics

lights out and my seat back as far as it will go
casting shadows like statues
i'm right outside your window
there's no such thing as second chances
there's no such thing don't bother to explain

you're so beautiful did you hear a word i said
you're so beautiful i guess this is what i get

we trust and believe so easily in words they speak
we seek security in one another but there's no way to cover this
and these tragic nights and afternoons wreak disaster
and i can still feel you as if you were in the room
where does our story end where does it start
i buried you along with my heart

entertain me and tell me "it didn't mean anything"
it's vengeance worth my tolerance and i could be careless
but i promise you'll feel everything

you're so beautiful did you hear a word i said (don't bother to explain)
you're so beautiful i guess this is what i get (don't bother to explain)

i guess this is what i get
(i know i know i know i know i know i know i know)

did you hear a word i said
