"I once knew a girl
In the years of my youth
With eyes like the summer
All the beauty and truth
In the morning I fled
Left a note and it read
Someday you will be loved"
-Death Cab For A Cutie

You see you’re no good to me
Cause you’ve left me oh so weak
Alone in a hallow whole you dug for two
Found your shadow weeping

All that blood came a seepin ‘

And you didn’t look twice

Say you felt like a boy
Wasting time on something that don’t exist
Guess we both fell off that map you made
Hidden beneath years that you would trade

So I take your shadow by the hand
He’s become my dearest friend
We lay side by side in bed
We lay side by side in bed

He lights me up a cigarette
And we dance around just
Two black silhouettes
Under lanterns held by string
Under moons and gods that sparkle as we sing
Never will we grow up
Singing babe, take me I’ll be your w****!

We laugh when you cross the street
‘Cause you stop and stare right at me
Realizing I’m your destiny
Realizing I’m your destiny
Time for me to leave he muttered
Guess you called
Left a plea on our answering machine
Pulled him back in
Now he’s back to wondering
Behind everything that you claim to be

I stop and stare at my feet
As you come cross the street
Take me by the hand and speak
Honey you’re my destiny
Honey you’re my destiny
Your shadow he winks at me
Thinking about those nights we keep
And we lay side by side in bed
Yeah all of us side by side in bed
