about

track-inspired artwork by Baxter Orr

lyrics

our bed is on the second floor
i've never been to sleep before
i know you had to go on up
and soon
so soon
i'll be lying next to you

i can't go up until my time arrives
so i'll sit here and bide my time
on the long couch in the soul of night
i've got the blues
the television light

our bed is on the second floor
i've never been to sleep before
i know you had to go on up
and soon
so soon
i'll be lying next to you
i'll be lying next to

the creaking stairs were calling me
i swore it was your voice
"baby?" was all they said
it's all you ever needed to

i know you're out there
i want to be where
i can feel your heartbeat
next to mine
my memory is fading
i'm tired of waiting
i need to rest outside of time

i'll be lying next to you
