he hides behind his cigarette
lets the smoke linger by his lips
exhales his sorrows watches them float to the heavens
as the clouds taste his kiss

i can’t help but take a picture
to the catch the sadness in his grin
oh sad boy sad boy who hurt you so bad like this

well shit, not even god knows what i ever saw in you
traipsing around like you were always blue
but at the touch of love you turned a scarlet hue
and that’s all i ever wanted to do
don’t you like friends enough to stay the night
you said if i don’t leave no i’ll never make it our alive

so you walked away left devastation in your wake
oh devastate me too
darling let me be broken with you
oh sad boy sad boy who did this to you


all that cheap talk, cold walks, cigarettes
those drunk thoughts, 12 blocks, heartbroken regrets
shattered bottles, alleyways empty
crowded front porches and kids on lsd
he’ll always live like lightning
not scared damn thing
one day he’ll crash like thunder
oh sad boy sad boy oh how much that’ll hurt

i’ll write songs about you
all about how your heart is broken and bruised
even after you die you won’t be dead
you’ll live forever in your lover’s head
oh sad boy sad boy i won’t let you go x 3
