lyrics

She's got a broken halo
She won't let it go for anyone
at night the sounds of the empty street
fill the space between everything
And she wonders, why the world won't stop

And I wait
Beneath a starless sky
And she steals my last breath
While the light leaves my eyes

I'd give anything to be wanted by her

I always wondered what would become of us
But life can stop you from saying all the things in life you'd like to
And it's a subtle type of suicide to be with her in the night
But I take the drug and don't think twice
She smiles at me and waits, but I just fade away
But there's so much left to say

And I wait
Beneath a starless sky
And she steals my last breath
While the light leaves my eyes

I'd give anything to be wanted by her

So this is it. It's the end of the world
The streetlights and this rooftop and this empty girl
And it's a subtle type of suicide to be with her in the night
But I take the drug and don't think twice
She smiles at me and waits, but I just fade away
But there's so much left to say

And I wait
Beneath a starless sky
And she steals my last breath
While the light leaves my eyes

I'd give anything to be wanted by her

The Public New Orleans, Louisiana

The Public was formed in New Orleans in 2003 by drummer Bryan Besse and guitarist Jack Champagne. Singer Travis Shuler and bassist Ryan Plattsmier joined the lineup and they began work on a few songs influenced by UK post-punk,90s Britpop and American underground alt-rock. They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
