you're slurring words and feeling worse for wear.
but you'll still get yr tongue around his
are you sure you didn't ask for this?
are you sure that you want this anymore?

exhale slow.
then breathe in deep.

you're hanging off his arm, barely holding it together
well you still might get what you came for
just don't mistake him for yr saviour.
are you sure that you can be saved anymore?

well what comes next?
walk out & leave.

since you've been dancing in the dry ice
bright lights leave you burnt out every night
they're all the same, so it seems.
with sweat and sin sliding off yr skin in the streets.
as the morning light rises over hills.

well what we'll get
will never be enough
on nights like this
you can't hold out for trust.

i'm standing outside & i'm still feeling fucking bitter
it's about time that i got better
i know bit by bit i'll get there
though i'm not sure that i care anymore.

have a heart
and hold it close
