MARBLE FLOORS

 
 

LYRICS

The morning light shines through the crack in that windowpane you bought 
The heat seeps through to the marble floors where we once stood and fought 
The empty walls in these endless halls have never felt so wrong 
No you can’t make this place grow on me, no I’ll never ever stay that long 

So please keep telling me how you just can’t see 
Why I don’t wanna be seen 
I was under the impression that this was all just fine 
And that our twisted way was how I called you mine 

Don’t make me believe that we could have normalcy 
No that’s too strange for me to see 
I was under the impression that we were coming to an end 
And that saying how I feel was a truth I could bend 

Echoes ring as I come to believe that no one can hear 
As I wander through lifeless rooms for what must be almost a year 
Too many chairs at the tables for the dinners we never have 
How can you call this a home when even a key to the front door we lack 

So please keep telling me how you just can’t see 
Why I don’t wanna be seen 
I was under the impression that this was all just fine 
And that our twisted way was how I called you mine 

Don’t make me believe that we could have normalcy 
No that’s too strange for me to see 
I was under the impression that we were coming to an end 
And that saying how I feel was a truth I could bend 

So let me tell you how you’ll never see 
That it’s you I just don’t want to see 
I was under the impression that this was all just fine 
And that our twisted way was how I called you mine 

And I’m content with our lack of normalcy 
Picturing otherwise is just too hard for me 
I was under the impression that we were coming to an end 
And that saying how I feel was a truth I could bend 

But suddenly I feel nothing 
Yet I’ve never known a feeling this strong 
And suddenly I feel nothing, nothing 
Oh nothing at all
