Julia, don't turn your head away like that.
Tried hard to hide your face, but last night
I sat and watched you sleeping.
Blonde hair watching Seinfeld,
I remember why I looked at you.
Julia, don't touch the fucking radio.
I'm done talking through music
and the paintings that we love.
You hate when I raise my voice so
I just stare at you

in the silence
with your head on your knees,
I heard chattering teeth
but I love the broken heat.

I'm sorry, I don't know what we're doing here.
The words we said out loud were just left
hanging in the air.
Memories drip to abstract,
I see curtains in your hair

and I'm sorry
that I didn't hold you
when you asked me to hold you,
and now I can't let go.

You jumped out the car
Said "Don't you wanna come?"
"We are who we are."
Oh I can't stop looking up.
I tried to fix the clock
You ate on the stairs
We both know we're not
going anywhere

so we drove for the night
but all you wanna do is fight

Julia that's alright
Please don't bite your tongue
I'm silent through the night
Oh I can't stop looking up
Okay, fine, you're right
I've been lying through my teeth
I still watch you sleep sometimes
Tired from enthymemes.
