lyrics

Five years and I couldn't forget you if I even tried
but let's not kid ourselves
I thrive on knowing you're not in my life
I remember everything that you forgot since then
and it's hard to sleep alone
when I keep running out of breath

I'd breathe you in if I could
but you're off in your own world

Daisy I promise
I won't let this dream die with you
so when you're swept to sea
I'll follow quick so I can save you
the last thing that you'll see tonight
close your eyes and just remember the green light

Drink another drop of poison just for fun
you know there's someone, somewhere watching us
we'll pay for what we've done
but until then I'm giving up on everything I couldn't be
is there not anyone you need?
is the money all you see?

I'll breathe you in if we both survive this
watch the soul-less eyes of our only witness

Daisy i promise
I won't let this dream die with us
so when I'm swept to sea
I hope you're watching from the shoreline
long island never shone so bright
so before i go will you just give me the green light?

I'd swim through murky waters
red with my blood if it meant
I'd survive for one more night
I know I'll never be what
you need but god help me if I don't try
it's all that keeps me alive

Daisy i promise
this dream won't die with us
so when I'm swept to sea
I hope you're watching from the shoreline
long island never shone so bright
so before i go...

Daisy i promise
I won't let this dream die with us
so when we're lost at sea
and there is no one left to follow
the waves will take us home somehow
but if we die will you just give me the green light?
