Brand New — Guernica lyrics

Ever since I was young
Your word is the word
That's always won
Worry and wake the ones you love
A phone call
I'd rather not recieve
Please use my body while I sleep
My lungs are fresh and yours to keep
Kept clean and they will let you breathe

Is this, the way a toy feels
When it's batteries run dry?
I am, the watch you always wear
But you forget to wind

Nobody plans to be half a world away
At times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened
Was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyes

I submit no excuse
If this is what I have to do
I owe you everyday I wake
If I could, I would shrink myself
Sink through your skin to your bloodcells
Remove what ever makes you hurt
But I'm to weak to be your cure

Is this, the way a toy feels
When it's batteries run dry?
I am the watch you always where
But you forget to wind

Nobody plans to be half a world away
At times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened
Was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on and
Stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyes

I'm not letting you check out
You will beat this starting now
And you will always be around
I'm there to monitor your breathing
I will watch you while your sleeping
I will keep you safe and sound

Does anybody remember back when you were very young?
Did you ever think that you would be this blessed?

Nobody plans to be half a world away
At times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened
Was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on
And stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyes
