lyrics

I'm gonna play my bass guitar
I'm gonna pretend that I'm far away from this place
I'm gonna play my bass

I've been sick for a long time now
I was sent up the Magic Mountain to get well
For how long nobody would tell

Nobody's sure what is the cure and what's the disease
But the chaplain prays and the doctor stays 'though I wish he'd leave
They put my night terrors down to errors in my dosage
But I know they've made a mistake in my diagnosis

See they don't know that you broke my heart
When you showed up and stopped what we'd started, oh I grieved
Why did you have to leave?

If I could go back to any place
I'd go straight to the sacred space in your embrace and I'd stay 'til I die
Oh but I can't, can I?

Now I'm above you and your love they say I'll survive
I had to stop the love I've got just to stay alive
Still memories of you and me they uselessly linger
As I sit with these strings under my fingers

There's a girl here who cuts her skin
She says skin is the thing that keeps us locked in and apart from each other
I said "then I'll be you blood brother"

And we sit up here watching the view
We'll sit all summer and all winter through
We sit together, just us two

I don't know what she thinks about but I think of you
