​Sell Your Alibi

This song is by Amely and appears on the album The Raleigh Sessions (2011).

You were my bird, you taught me to sing
But I always knew that you'd stretch your wings
Now that you're gone, it's hard to believe
If given the chance, would you fly back to me?

In awe, I watch while the sky burns like fire
Before it says goodnight

Caught in this permanent reprise
Where all we do is say goodbye
Reliving every breath, recalling every line
Before you sell your alibi

You were my song, yeah you were my inspiration
I heard it in a dream till I woke up
Then you were gone. There was a mannequin your place
How could every frame turn so unreal?

With words so quiet like beckoning silence that change the tide

Caught in this permanent reprise
Where all we do is say goodbye
Reliving every breath, recalling every line
Before you sell your alibi

I wait and watch while my world turns expired, and we become

Caught in this permanent reprise
Where all we do is say goodbye
Reliving every breath, recalling every time
Before you sell

Woah
Woah

Reliving every breath, recalling every time
Before you sell your alibi

You were my bird, you taught me to sing
But I always knew that you'd stretch your wings
