The Airborne Toxic Event Lyrics: This Losing
From The Album The Airborne Toxic Event (Deluxe) (2009)
Lyrics by Mikel Jollett
Standing at your doorway with my stomach all tangled and tight. Have it your way, oh God where are you tonight? ‘Cause I don’t know what I’m doing here, where to begin.
Just take a deep breath, darling don’t let me in.
A thousand times we’ve said I’m sorry, it’s over again. I can’t live like this, or feel like this in my own skin. It all seems so degrading; in the morning such sin. Your face like a child’s, darling don’t let me in.
And we laugh just like children, wading in sheets on your bed, while we secretly pray like we’re mourning the dead. And you tell me you’re so weary, I know ‘cause I’m weary too. You hold back a tear; darling what are we to do?
And the wine, and the rain, and the feel of your skin against mine, I’m swimming, I’m flying, I’m dying. And this face, this fear, just stay with me, oh stay with me my dear. This hand, this glove, this only thing I love.
And this losing, this losing, this losing, this losing, this losing, this losing… love.
