Space Between the Bedsheets

(VERSE)

I got scars from falling down last night

It's nothing new baby

It's just a new way to stretch my conscience thin

I woke up yea with sleep in my eyes

You finally answered my question why

You never get too close to foolish men

 

I've been chasin' her for 5 long years

She moved to Baltimore and back again

Now she's headin' west in search of higher ground

And she's riding on subways & street cars

I never thought it'd be this hard

To swallow the fact she beat me pound for pound 

 

(CHORUS)

Cause the Space Between the Bedsheets is her safety

And she's never been a fan of skin on skin

But when you look past the pain and her shattered childhood state

The beauty that remains is like an angel who lost her way

Missed the boat and somehow landed here

 

(VERSE)

Now the days are slowly creepin' on October

And the Portland rains they’ve been sleepin' for a week

And I'm on a plane to go and finally see her

And make new shadows at the places that we meet

 

I'm the first to say I'm not in the best shape to see her

I haven't shaved in weeks 

And my brand new boots are torn

But my heart is full, intentions clear 

My unsure nature slowly disappears

At the thought of our love being a little worn

 

(CHORUS)

Cause the Space Between the Bedsheets is her safety

And she's never been a fan of skin on skin

But when you look past the pain and her shattered childhood state

The beauty that remains is like an angel who lost her way

Missed the boat and somehow landed here
