Bleeding Blue Like California

Come knocking on my window,
Come inside and bury all the black under my bed
Where you shoved your words and lovers
Everywhere and once we fell in love
Enveloped in the red.

Oh baby, call the doctor if I suffocate
Count the beats of my heart
And kiss these scars
If it’s not too late.
Don’t make me scream for you
Wait here by my house
Toss stones at my door
If you feel that all of this is new.

Bleeding blue like the color of our heartbreak
Leaving signs of evidence
Taking all the breaths away
Oh baby, what to do when I’m your rival
Fighting the immune
And begging for survival
You’re lost in the sheet against the doorway
Find me if you can’t call home

Tell me why we even sing
Songs that we’ll never believe
And if you can, whisper to me
What you know I can deceive
Baby, please sew me up before I lose my circulation.
Talking to my mom about a higher education.

Oh baby, call the doctor if I suffocate
I’ll lose my oxygen crying for the unfair
And kiss my scars if it’s not too late.
Don’t make me scream for you
Wait here by the entrance
Toss knives at my face
If you feel that this is true.

Bleeding blue like the color of our heartbreak
Leaving signs of evidence
Taking all the breaths away
Oh baby, what to do when I’m your rival
Fighting the immune
And begging for survival
You’re lost in the sheet against the doorway
Find me if you can’t call home.

You’re bleeding blue all over the door
Letting stars burst like sparks on our kitchen floor
You’re swimming through the ice
Like you don’t know how to cry
Waiting for the bird
That can never even fly.
Save me, let her blink those little eyes
Staring at the picture when the sun began to rise.

Bleeding blue
Bleeding blue, oh
Like you’re asking for me to save you.
