“an empty room,
I’m empty too
and everything reminds me of you.
so many things
I shouldn’t have missed.
the more that I push,
and the more you resist.”
“there may be other people like us
who see the flicker of the clipper when they light up.
flames just create us, burns don’t heal like before.
you don’t hold me anymore.”
“but the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
and will live a long life.
give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light.
‘cause oh that gave me such a fright.
but I will hold as long as you like,
just promise me we’ll be alright.”
“the sheets are stained with
memories of your soft kiss.
now this is all I have,
[…] and I will blame myself
for holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side.
I will blame myself.”
“I wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
the less I give the more I get back
oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you
oh I don’t love you but I always will…”
“maybe tonight I’ll call ya,
after my blood turns to alcohol.
no, I just wanna hold ya.
[…] all I want is the taste that your lips allow,
my, my, my, my, oh give me love.”
“now blank stares and empty threats
are all I have, they’re all I have.
[…] now you still speak of day old hate
though your whole world has gone up into flames.
and isn’t it great to find that you’re really worth nothing…”
“I’ll never be your chosen one,
I’ll be home safely tucked away.
[…] the pull on my flesh was just too strong
stifled the choice and the air in my lungs
better not to breathe than to breathe a lie
‘cause when I open my body, I breathe in a lie.
[…] but oh my heart was flawed I knew my weakness,
so hold my hand consign me not to darkness.”
