accident prone lyrics – jawbreaker

what’s the furthest place from here?
it hasn’t been my day
for a couple years
what’s a couple more?

and if i go, don’t forget
the one good thing i almost did
i learned your name without words
i used my eyes, not my hands

what’s the closest you can come
to an almost total wreck
and still walk away
all limbs intact?

and when i go, you’ll be there
crying out, begging me
i won’t hear, i’ll just go fast
into this night on broken legs

a near miss or a close call
i keep a room at the hospital
i scratch my accidents into the wall

i couldn’t wait to breathe your breath
i cut in line, i bled to death
i got to you, there was nothing left

what’s the meanest you can be
to the one you claim to love
and still smile to all
your new-found friends?

in the same confusing breath
you pull away and draw me in
i wanted you, you wanted more
i built this life and now it’s mine

a near miss or a close call
i keep a room at the hospital
i scratch my accidents into the wall

i couldn’t wait to breathe your breath
i cut in line, i bled to death
i got to you, there was nothing left
