memento mori: apocalypse

You leapt from crumbling bridges
Watching cityscapes turn to dust
Filming helicopters crashing in the ocean
From way above

Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You’ve been locked in there forever
And they just can’t say goodbye

Kisses on the foreheads of the lovers
Wrapped in your arms
You’ve been hiding them in
Hollowed out pianos left in the dark

Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You’ve been locked in there forever
And they just can’t say goodbye

Your lips, my lips, apocalypse
Go and sneak us through the rivers
Flood is rising up on your knees, oh please
Come out and haunt me, I know you want me
Come out and haunt me

Sharing all your secrets with each other
Since you were kids
Sleeping soundly with the locket
That she gave you clutched in your fist

Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You’ve been locked in there forever
And you just can’t say goodbye

You’ve been locked in there forever
And you just can’t say goodbye

Oh, oh
When you’re all alone
I will reach for you
When you’re feeling low
I will be there too
