Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – Not Tonight Lyrics

Not Tonight By Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

Every Saturday, I wait for the footfalls in the hall
Mother Mary at the wings and the ocean is upon us
Still wanna steal, run nowhere out here, nothing moves at all
Wood smoke, Joan and Quran, we light up by the loadin’ sun

Every night, I count the cracks up on the backroom wall
Fall into the fault line when I reach across to you

‘Cause even when you’re here
It’s like there’s no else around
I’m sleepin’ on my tears
I’m burnin’ all my candles down, oh

Gemstone, I remember when the spark went flat
Wafer thin and you were singin’ in your midnight black

Every night, I count the cracks up on the backroom wall
Fall into the fault line when I reach across to you

‘Cause even when you’re here
It’s like there’s no else around
I’m sleepin’ on my tears
I’m burnin’ all my candles down, oh

I stand at ceremony while the ship sinks
I put the iceberg in my tall drink
I’m waiting at the door like a lone pine
Talkin’ ’bout the war at the hotel
I stand at ceremony while the ship sinks
I put the iceberg in my tall drink
I’m waiting at the door like a lone pine
Talkin’ ’bout the war through the night
Seems life ain’t all comin’ down or leavin’
Filled with nothin’ for no one to believe in

‘Cause even when you’re here
It’s like there’s no else around
I’m sleepin’ on my tears
I’m burnin’ all my candles down, oh
