handkerchief lyrics – gadjits

making you wish we never met
won’t solve a godd*mn thing i know.
i’ve got this lump in my throat
it’s tearing me up like draino.
inhale you like gasoline.
feel my strength dissipating.
hold you inside of me,
’til i am suffocating.

and it beats waving a handkerchief
goodbye, goodbye
to a fuzzy face on a moving ship
new guy, new guy

these ties of ours,
they’re supposed to blind me
to paper kites and bedposts,
not mistakes i left behind me.
there’s nothing right now
as tenuous as my kite string,
nothing as precarioius
as looking down on you when i am flying.
