​Painkiller

This song is by Paper Aeroplanes and appears on the EP A Comfortable Sleep (2011).

I walked home alone at the end of the night
And whispered your name in the dark.
You stood out a mile from the secrets and lies
And found a straight line to my heart
Right from the start.

The maps and the journeys were clear to see.
Directions were etched on your words.
The dark pools of yesterday under your eyes
Where pain and perfection got blurred.
But I liked what I heard.

Don't fall.
I'll be your painkiller.
Don't fall.
We're the same as each other.
Don't fall.
You just have to give me a call.

I deserted the days and those delicate ways,
Kept away from the fire and the sparks.
But we stumbled upon the least likely of days
As we sheltered ourselves from the past,
The shadows we cast.

Don't fall.
I'll be your painkiller.
Don't fall.
We're the same as each other.
Don't fall.
You just have to give me a call.

And we're the same, you see.
We can suddenly search for the hope that we've lost.
It's an epiphany.
Come and find me.
You're the only hope that I've got.
And never believe that you're not.

Don't fall.
I'll be your painkiller.
Don't fall.
We're the same as each other.
Don't fall.
You just have to give me a call.
Don't fall.
You just have to give me a call.
