lyrics

He keeps all his sleepless nights
In the bags under his eyes
And he asks if it's alright
If I leave after we're done

And so I gather up my pride,
Throw my shirt over my shoulder
And his last scorn in my side
He says he's waiting on someone,
He's waiting on someone

But I take solace in the fact
That his past is checkered as the blanket
That he drapes across his back
As he turns away to sleep

And that boy's a stiff old drink
You always wonder why you drank it
And it burns more than you think
Still that burns all I keep
Oh, that burns all I keep


Don't grow cold
Don't grow cold on me
I'm cold enough for both of us, so,
Don't lose your hold
Don't lose your hold on me
I'm twice the fool I knew I'd be


Well I wonder if I need him
Maybe I'm just smitten
By the grass that's so forbidden
On his side of the fence

I'm a feather in his cap
I'm the fresh notch on his bedpost
And the thing that hurts my head most
I feel a chance
Oh, I swear I feel a chance


Don't grow cold
Don't grow cold on me
I'm cold enough for both of us, so,
Don't lose your hold
Don't lose your hold on me
I'm twice the fool I knew I'd be
