lyrics

you got your hand on my arm
playing a nocturne on my palm as the pianist plays on
we're dissonant unisons, both a little off
both trying to make right from two wrongs
but we're perfect in theory, we're twelve tones apart
the difference is so slight, so small
you can barely hear it at all

and if I can slow down your fall
things will be still
things will be calm
if I can slow down your fall
things will be still
things will be calm
but not for long

but something's off!
And now every single light in the night sky
could be another eye and you're convinced that i'm a liar!
and everything's a sign
that there's something in the darkness
we huddle in your apartment
so please let me in
i swear i didn't come here to kill you
am i the girl you're terrified of?
sitting here crying on this tenderloin sidewalk

we're perfect in theory; we're twelve tones apart
the difference is so slight, so small...
we're six beating strings and we're two beating hearts
the difference is so so small
but if we keep beating like this we'll end up eating our fists
until the dampers finally fall

and when they finally fall
things will be still
things will be calm..

we're perfect in theory; we're twelve tones apart
we're perfect in theory; we're twelve tones apart
we're perfect in theory...
