IT: you have every right to be scared

(no subject)

but I knew you'd linger like a tattoo kiss,
knew you'd haunt all of my what-ifs
the smell of smoke would hang around this long,
cause I knew everything when I was young.
I knew I'd curse you for the longest time,
chasing shadows in the grocery line,
I knew you'd miss me once the thrill expired,
and you'd be standing in my front porch light.

and I knew you'd come back to me.
I knew you'd come back to me.
I knew you'd come back to me.
I knew you'd come back.

and when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone's bed
you put me on and said I was your favorite.

when you are young, they assume you know nothing.
but I knew you, dancing in your Levi's
drunk under a streetlight, oh
I knew you, hand under my sweatshirt
baby, kiss it better, oh


and when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone's bed
you put me on and said I was your favorite

arrogant boy
love yourself so no one has to
they're better off without you
they're better off without you

arrogant boy
cause a scene like you're supposed to
they'll fall asleep without you
you're lucky if your memory remains

my ship went down in a sea of sound
when I woke up alone, I had everything
a handful of moments i wished i could change,
and a tongue like a nightmare that cut like a blade.

my lungs gave out as I faced the crowd
I think that keeping this up could be dangerous
I'm flesh and bone, I'm a rolling stone
and the experts say I'm delirious

give me therapy, I'm a walking travesty
but I'm smiling at everything
therapy, you were never a friend to me
you can take back your misery.

I called you after sunset, but you were gone.
I'm calling out your name again.
I would never hesitate to come to you.
I'd fly across the world, my friend.

I can only hope that the bleeding's over now.
I can only hope that the pain subsides somehow.
I can only hope.

It's the way that you blush when you're nervous
It's your ability to make me earn this
I know that you're tired
Just let me sing you to sleep

It's about how you laugh out of pity
Cause let's be honest, I'm not really that funny
I know that you're shot
Just let me sing you to sleep

It's those pills that you don't need to take
Medicating perfection? Now that's a mistake
I know that you're spent
Just let me sing you to sleep

It's your finger, and how I'm wrapped around it
It's your grace, and how it keeps me grounded
I know that you're weak
Just let me sing you to sleep

While you were sleeping, I figured out everything
I was constructed for you, and you were molded for me
Now I feel your name coursing through my veins
You shine so bright, it's insane
You put the sun to shame.

Just in time, I'm so glad you have a one-track mind like me.
You gave my life direction-- a gameshow love connection
we can't deny.
I'm so obsessed, my heart is bound to beat
right out my untrimmed chest.
I believe in you, like a virgin, you're Madonna,
and I'm always gonna wanna blow your mind.

I can be myself now, finally--
in fact, there's nothing I can't be.
I want the world to see you be with me.

I don't wanna miss a single thing you do.

Love, I get so lost sometimes.
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart.
When I want to run away, I drive off in my car,
but whichever way I go, I come back to the place you are.

Love, I don't like to see so much pain--
so much wasted, and this moment keeps slipping away.
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival.
I look to my time with you to keep me awake and alive.

And all my instincts, they return.
And the grand facade so soon will burn,
without a noise, without my pride,
I reach out from the inside.

In your eyes, the light, the heat,
I am complete.
I see the doorway to a thousand churches;
the resolution of all my fruitless searches.
Oh, I see the light and the heat--
oh, I want to be that comlete.
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes.
