nothing to give lyrics – white lies

you talked me to sleep last night
i hadn’t felt that sad in years
your eyes like gl*ss mistakes
they moved me close to tears
you speak those favorite fables
which i am yet to live
and casually confirm my fears
that i’ve got nothing to give

i wish i could say
that i’ve got no regrets
but saying that would be one more
to pile on my desk
i wish i could say i’ve clung to time like gold
but as you said goodbye i almost died
i almost died

i take it back all of it
those names i called myself
the heroes of my childhood
like hardbacks on the shelf
i take it back those promises
i made to everyone
i’m falling through a ribbon last
before i’d learn to run

i wish i could say
that i’ve got no regrets
but saying that would be one more
to pile on my desk
i wish i could say i’ve clung to time like gold
but as you said goodbye i almost died
i almost died
i almost died
