lyrics

I think every white car in this Midwest city is yours
And every time I pass your car I wave but you're not there to respond
There's an elephant sitting on my chest and it won't leave
My heart's a miner in a cave-in it's a hive without the bees

You're the one that I wanna spend the rest of my life with
The one I wanna grow long white hair and then lay down to die with
But if it isn't with you then I think I'd rather be alone

I used to be in that Christmas tree picture with you
But you cut me out and taped yourself up next to someone new
And you're getting married on the same month and day that I was born
You blew the candles out and said it's not my birthday anymore

You're the one that I wanna spend the rest of my life with
The one I wanna grow long white hair and then lay down to die with
But if it isn't with you then I think I'd rather be alone

Like the quartet of strings on the Titanic ship
As it's famously going down
I will bravely be playing you this last song
As the lifeboats are drifting out
We get cold
Our last breath in our mouths

You're the one that I wanna spend the rest of my life with
The one I wanna grow long white hair and then lay down to die with
But if it isn't with you then I think I'd rather be alone
I've decided I don't wanna aim a loaded dirty pistol down my throat
So if it isn't with you then I think I'd rather be alone
Yeah if it isn't with you then I think I'd rather be alone
