Verse
I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
Pre-Chorus
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go
And I just can't look
It's killing me
And taking control
Chorus
Jealousy,
Turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I was singing the song as I was typing but then I had to stop for a bit to figure out what was wrong with "alibies".

I left that blank and got back to it because I was in the flow.
