Sunday Afternoon

Rachael Yamagata

It’s a choice
to stay
It’s a dream
& I wanna wake

You have blood on your hands
and I’m feeling faint
And honey–
You can’t decide

I’m a drug
Ya don’t wanna give up
Smoke your cigarettes
Make your love

You poured blood in my heart
and I can’t get enough
I’m drowning, drowning
and you can’t decide

It’s not about geography, or happenstance
you need to fly, & take a chance
You don’t need to soar to emptiness
Float on high, & forever dance alone

Your scared, scared, scared
because I feel like home

I hear your voice
Knew right away
If you were here
what your eyes would say

There is blood on my feet
as I’m walking away
Rivers are red
Its starting to rain

I’m not gonna live for you
or die for you
Won’t do anything anymore for you
because you leave me here on the other side
You leave me here on the other side

Not gonna shed one more tear for you
shed one more tear for you
I’m not gonna shed one more tear for you

At least not til Sunday Afternoon
Sunday Afternoon

Leave or Stay
Leave or Stay
