a live take of Goodnight Bear


Goodbye, Bear
I've got a plane to catch
I won't speak to you again
One last kiss
That I'll wake you up with
Cold eyes open and numb me again

The way your hands trembled
When you picked up the glass
Thought I had seen you scared for once
I tried so hard to hide
Everything you had done
In fear you'd feel ashamed for once

Goodnight, Bear
Open your eyes soon
Wherever you are

Vampires, liars, and psychopaths
Addicts at best
I can smell them from a mile away
I let them bite, didn't know my skin would break

A week after you left
I lost the back of an earring in a strange man's room
And I went anywhere
That I knew you were not
I lost the earring in St. Louis

Goodnight, Bear
Open you eyes soon
Wherever you are

All throughout the years I dreamt my face
In a Holly Hill mirror
You would laugh at all my nightmares
Now you're living those dreams
I wanted the world against you, still,
My enemy
I hope you are far away from there,
I wish it were me...

Sweet Bear
As I open the blinds
