12. OXYGEN

NATIVE TONGUE
by Switchfoot



 

[Verse 1]
You were there at the door
You said, "I don't know how to say this
But I want more
I don't know how you're gonna take this"
And my mind went sore
And my body went weightless
I couldn't find the floor
I couldn't find the floor

[Chorus]
And you walked away
And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame
Like watching a movie in slow motion, I'm miles away
Up like a rocket ship ascends, it's drifting up into space
And I'm running out of oxygen

[Verse 2]
We can't go back to the first
Losing stories like leap year
With fake smiles and words
Just a ghost left to be near
I'm not sure how this works
What do you want me to say, dear?
All I know is it hurts
All I know is it hurts

[Chorus]
And you walked away
And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame
Like watching a movie in slow motion, I'm miles away
Up like a rocket ship ascends, it's drifting up into space
And I'm running out of oxygen

[Bridge]
I'm drifting out of the hemisphere
So far away
All of the memories disappear
And start to fade

[Chorus]
And you walked away
And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame
Like watching a movie in slow motion, I'm miles away
Up like a rocket ship ascends, it's drifting up into space
And I'm running out of oxygen
