Lyrics

he felt a curse around his neck
like a yoke he knows he'll never forget
the way she cut through his bed
like a snake will bite through a cave of flesh
but he holds her
though she's broken
he swears he don't care
where she's been
'cause he's tired of being human
he wears her close to the bone
as though she were his own skin
he shoots from the heart
inside of the head
his mouth and his words
they rarely connect
he looks to the past
and where his tongue's tread
and he knows he's meant the opposite
but she holds him
like an infant
though it breaks her in half to know he'll wake like a man
who's sold on cold indifference
when he reaches for her she's gone
she slips like the wind through blackened sails
and who are we
to love at all
and who are we
to love again
and i hope you don't mind
if i hang all of my hopes
i hang all my hopes on this time
although i've been warned
i'll probably get burned
i'd rather get burned than to not try
i hope you don't mind
if i hang all of my hopes
i hang all my hopes on this time
cause you won't
let it go
