Icarus The Owl Pilot Waves Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You left via train tracks
On a Monday soaked with rain
You didn't stop until the mountains
We're small rocks out of frame

[Chorus]
What am I (x3)
Supposed to do?
You got your noose around my neck
You never want me coming back
I should have ran (x4)
After you that rainy night
Before your car went off the side

[Verse 2]
Meaningless motion
On a shallow empty frame
They pass the time
But I still picture your name

[Chorus]
What am I (x3)
Supposed to do?
You got your noose around my neck
You never want me coming back
I should have ran (x4)
After you that rainy night
Before your car went off the side

[Post-Chorus]
Tell me how to
Bring you back (x2)
I'll tell you that
I was wrong (x2)
Your face is still beautiful
With all your skin gone
Tell me this is all but delusion
The witching hour begins now

[Bridge]
The dimples in your cheeks
Are drenched in gasoline
It's but a small victory
For the ballad of you and me
As you're taken away (as you're taken away)
As your soul leaves this place
Even with your body maimed
I'll love you the same

[Outro]
I'll try to be or feign a better man
And put the sky up in your cloudy head
Take a step where the light has to go, go
How could we fail to find a steady hand?
My sun won’t rise or fall without you here
Our beach is rubble; our lighthouse is gone
It's gone!
(It's gone!)(x3)
