Close Up on the Quiet Ones – Answering Machine

Mark my hands, I’m just pretend.
I’ll stutter, try to make amends.

But what you take, you can’t give,
and you’re not alone, you’re not alone.
I stare at the pillow case where you have been,
I am not the one that’s given in.
I am not the one that’s given in.

You said you’re leaving, in 28 days.
I wasn’t ready for this.
I wasn’t ready for this.
Now I’m on my knees begging for you to stay.
Just begging for you to say.

I’m coming with you.
I swear I’ll hold your hand in the dark.
We’re gonna leave everything we know.
We’ll make our own home.
We’ll be alright.

No matter what you say, I know I’m gonna marry you someday.
It sounds like I’m not the kid that I used to be. ‘Cause I’m not the kid that I used to be.
You’ve changed my mind.
You know I never thought I’d find someone like you
and reason to stay behind.
I’m gonna be there for all your life.
I’m gonna be there for all your life.

And I’ve got so much to say that I can’t write. so call me when it’s over.
Call me when you hear this.
Cause if you’re listening, it means we’re standing in the aftermath
whether hand in hand, we’ll just relax.
you’re still the one I wanna ask to join me in my vanishing act.
Just grab ahold and drop the curtain, cause all my life I’ve thought this was a lie.
But not this time. No not this time
