(Chorus)

Can’t seem to replace you, and I…
Wanna hold you but I can’t bring myself...
To, there you are sliding on my bedroom door I,
Never want to replace you, and I’m not sure I could.
Quarter past noon, and I’m…
Selling myself to the wind.

 

(Verse 1)

And there you are, sitting so perfectly.
Smoking a blunt out of stress, and I
Want. To. Get. Close.
Do you hear the tick, tick, ticking in my head?
And my heart beat, beat, beating in my chest.
My soul is connected to my heart,
Time’s running out, and I’m on the dot.
Can you fix me?
Lying here passed out in the sand
Told you I’d meet you here,
And you’d pick me…
Up, But I’m not sure I’d…

 

(Chorus)

Can’t seem to replace you, and I…
Wanna hold you but I can’t bring myself.
There you are sliding on my bedroom door I,
Never wanna replace you, and I’m not sure I could.
Quarter past noon, and I’m…
Selling myself to the wind.

 

(Verse 2)

I’m sitting alone, in a quiet room,
Waiting for you to come home to me,
And I just want you here, to hold me,
Close. And forget pain, And I…
Can help you, but I…

 

(Chorus)
Can’t seem to replace you, and I…
Wanna hold you but I can’t bring myself.
There you are sliding on my bedroom door I,
Never wanna replace you, and I’m not sure I could.
Quarter past noon, and I’m…
Selling myself to the wind.

 

(Verse 3)

Do you hear the clocks tick, tick, ticking?
I’ll never replace you.
I swear next time I’ll slide through your
Bedroom door I,

I won't f***ing breathe,
Can't you believe,
That you’re sitting here with me.
So I’ll keep you close,
And try to forget my pain,
Because when I’m with you,
It all goes away.

 

(Final Chorus)

Can’t seem to replace you,
And I’d never want to.
Next time you slide through my
Bedroom door I’ll,
Never let you go

What is love? No one can really define it I guess. It is different for everyone. I hope you enjoyed this song. It was very close to my heart. Feel free to give constructive criticism. I love that, it helps me be a better writer.
