Emergency Room

I was sitting in the emergency room
There was pressure in my chest
A need to get out of my head
As it was yelling at me
To let this go

Then I heard the airplanes overhead
Turned to see your face
crushcrushcrush wouldn't describe my thoughts
I caught myself before I spoke to you
Careful of how I played my part
I've been in the misery business
More than once

But your ignorance
It was all I wanted
What did you do to me
For a pessimist I'm pretty optimistic now
And we yelled out hallelujah
Things were looking up and finally
I stopped feeling sorry for myself

It was under that oh, star
That I realised you were the only exception
The only one who who can break my walls
Brick by boring brick
I didn't want to turn it off
I was more than ready to let the flames begin

But then an conspiracy rose its head
I decode your game
And all we know
Its all gone
We are broken

But I'm stuck on you
Where the lines overlap
Where there was truth and lie
Here we go again
I went and let you in
I need to break this circle

But whoa
What's this you say you'll really try?
But my fences are back
I lost hope for any kind of miracle with you
You claim we were born for this
Born to be together

But you're the brighter one
Who will always get by
I'm among the misguided ghosts
Who will never believe
So stop playing god
Go back to Franklin

I now run away
When it rains
Don't come after me

I was sitting in the emergency room
There was pressure in my chest
A need to get out of my head
As it was yelling at me
To let this go
