Just By Being You

lyrics

The floor’s so cold that I can barely feel my feet
And the tears at the back of my throat never tasted so sweet
And the shirt that you left in my room smells like a sexed-on sheet
And the sound of your steps on the stairs are in time with my heartbeat

The wet of your kiss on my lips is getting cold and dry
And the teapot whistle has faded from a scream into a sigh
And my dreams followed you out the door and kissed your back goodbye
Is it the ache in my head or your leavin’ that makes me want to cry?

Just when I felt alright again
Just when I told myself we were through
You made me feel alive again
Just by being you

The thought of your crooked smile is making my face frown
And I’m missin you so deep it’s enough to make me drown
And my own sighs are so loud that I can’t hear a sound
And the way we were so right is bringin’ me way down

The wind’s still blowin’ through the window you left open when you walked away
And I can’t seem to take off the clothes that I wore yesterday
And a voice in my head is screamin’, baby please stay
Is it just my room or my life that lies in disarray?

Just when I felt alright again
Just when I told myself we were through
You made me feel alive again
Just by being you

And now the tears are in my eyes and they’re rainin’ onto you
And no matter what you say next, baby, please let it be true
‘Cause my heart and my head are fightin’ over what I need to do
And all I really know is that I need you

Just when I felt alright again
Just when I told myself we were through
You made me feel alive again
Just by being

Just when I felt alright again
Just when I told myself we were through
You made me feel alive again
Just by being you

oh no no
