Lyrics

oh my, oh no
how can i be so shameless
and let myself fall
so impossibly for you
you wish to demystify
our electricity
and claim
the charge between our hearts
as just illusionary
oh my, oh no
how can i be so shameless
and let myself fall
so impossibly again

i spent too many years
searching for somebody
to be my wrecking ball
and rebuild all that's broken

i spent too many nights
without ever thinking
maybe i'm a wrecking ball
and i'm breaking all that i'm touching

and i spent too many days
drowning in the shallows
of the mess of the man that i made
and the nest of mistakes that i have to lay

doctor
i'm telling you to cut me open please
doctor
i'm begging you to bring me to my knees
tear out all my flesh and all my bones
make me a cold machine
so i can walk alone

hey moon who do you call
when you're trying to chase the bad moon off
hey now what do you do
when you can't chase the bad you loose
hey moon hey moon hey moon hey moon hey moon hey moon
hey

doctor
i'm telling you to cut me open please
doctor
i'm begging you to bring me to my knees
tear out all my flesh and all my bones
make me a cold machine
so i can walk alone

i want you so bad
i can't stand the man that i am

i got this riddle figured
do you?
someone must have sent you
to orchestrate a shell game
against the calluses of our hearts
i hate your subtle beauty
do you?
the way your doe eyes slow dance me
and beat like a million hummingbirds
when i draw closer
and the slope of your nose i detest
it's the kind that drove pharaohs crazy
touch me i'm a hornet's nest
sinking in egyptian levies
most of all i hate the way that i miss your sight
more than a blind man would miss his own eyes
miss his own eyes
miss his own eyes

oh my, oh no
how can i be so shameless
and let myself
fall so impossibly for you
oh my, oh no
how can i be so shameless
it's cause i've learned that need deceives
and you are what i want
