I can still smell your perfume

Toxic Perfume

we're sat alone in this empty room,

we're sat alone in this empty room, air filled up with your toxic perfume,

we're sat alone in this empty room, air filled up with your toxic perfume, a sea of sadness in eyes so blue,

were sat alone in this empty room, air filled up with your toxic perfume, a sea of sadness in eyes so blue, i choke on my words, silence ensues.

the lightbulb flickers, a hint of doom,

the lightbulb flickers, a hint of doom, that something bright is ending soon,

the lightbulb flickers, a hint of doom, that something bright is ending soon, i know they say not to assume,

the lightbulb flickers, a hint of doom, that something bright is ending soon, i know they say not to assume, but silence sings a sad old tune.

you grab my hand, and say that lie,

you grab my hand, and say that lie, "dont you worry, we'll be fine,"

you grab my hand, and say that lie, "dont you worry, we'll be fine," the hope runs thin, the hundredth time,

you grab my hand, and say that lie, "dont you worry, we'll be fine," the hope runs thin, the hundredth time, i don't see love, within those eyes.

your eyes soft but stare burns, third degree,

your eyes soft but stare burns, third degree, they tell me that youve set me free,

your eyes soft but stare burns, third degree, they tell me that youve set me free, i loved the trap, but you could see,

your eyes soft but stare burns, third degree, they tell me that youve set me free, i loved the trap, but you could see, that me and you werent meant to be.

your green dress is pretty, a funny hue,

your green dress is pretty, a funny hue, because im the one that envies you,

your green dress is pretty, a funny hue, because im the one that envies you, for knowing you can start anew,

your green dress is pretty, a funny hue, because im the one that envies you, for knowing you can start anew, while im still stuck to you like glue.

through stormy weather, destined to meet,

through stormy weather, destined to meet, you hug me kindly, and stroke my cheek,

through stormy weather, destined to meet, you hug me kindly, and stroke my cheek, your touch is warm, i feel the heat,

through stormy weather, destined to meet, you hug me kindly, and stroke my cheek, your touch is warm, i feel the heat, your clouds have cleared, your mind is now free.

she fills up my eyes with one last goodbye,

she fills up my eyes with one last goodbye, the saddest departure, but i wont cry,

she fills up my eyes with one last goodbye, the saddest departure, but i wont cry, okay thats a lie, my eyes arent dry,

she fills up my eyes with one last goodbye, the saddest departure, but i wont cry, okay thats a lie, my eyes arent dry, odd because my emotions are shy.

when i need them to be open and honest,

when i need them to be open and honest, tell her i love her, keep my one promise,

when i need them to be open and honest, tell her i love her, keep my one promise, my emotions they hide, lost in these sonnets,

when i need them to be open and honest, tell her i love her, keep my one promise, my emotions they hide, lost in these sonnets, until its too late, now i cry? so dishonest.

you get up to leave and with my last breath,

you get up to leave and with my last breath, i search for words, my voice is suppressed,

you get up to leave and with my last breath, i search for words, my voice is suppressed, a sigh is released, i lower my head,

you get up to leave and with my last breath, i search for words, my voice is suppressed, a sigh is released, i lower my head, i look back up, but youve already left.

i guess for the best, you needed to bloom,

i guess for the best, you needed to bloom, flowers dont grow in doom and gloom,

i guess for the best, you needed to bloom, flowers dont grow in doom and gloom, and i need some time, alone in this room,

i guess for the best, you needed to bloom, flowers dont grow in doom and gloom, and i need some time, alone in this room, air still smells of your toxic perfume.
