New single from The Bynars' 2nd album, X vs. X (out September 17, 2013)


I've been dancing alone for so long
Can't believe that all my money is gone
Will it rain and stop the rain
Or will the rain remain?

Old habits die young, die hard, die tragic,
Die stupid on the clothesline in the yard, like magic
This scent, these shoes, this heart, and this bruise
I said I hate you last night, but I hope you know the truth

I don't know where I am today
Still getting over our yesterdays
Give it to me slow, give it to me right
Save my tomorrow, come dance tonight

I've been acting like I'm out of my mind
So when I text you on a Saturday night
I wanna hear from you right away
Don't let me bleed out from all the pain

We've been dancing on a dream
Babe, it ain't the way it seems
Faking it between the sheets

We've been hanging on the night
Ooo, but it don't seem right
Hanging on the satellites
Dancing on a dream tonight

Sad eyes in the bedroom (and I don't know why)
I'll never forget you (and I don't know why)
I'm sorry I never let you (and I don't know why)
Sad eyes in the bedroom (and I don't know why)

When I looked in the mirror last night (and I don't know why)
I couldn't stare at the awful sight (and I don't know why)
So I inform you regretfully (and I don't know why)
I will always hate that part of me (and I don't know why)

I can't eat and when I do sleep (when I do sleep)
The night is quite and the silence runs deep (silence runs deep)
And now I pray for the break of day (and now I know why)
To make the bad dreams go away (and now I know why)

Is there something that I can believe? (and now I know why)
Nothing is real, and neither is he (and now I know why)

We've been dancing on a dream
Babe, it ain't the way it seems
Faking it between the sheets

I've been wishing on the sky
But I know the stars don't shine
They are just these little lights
Dancing on a dream tonight
