lyrics

I've been tying myself up for you, do what you want to. Drink my blood until you've had your fill, I really want you to, I really want you. Just don't leave me stretched out and exposed. Just don't leave me naked and alone. You can scream his name into my mouth, I know you love him. You can shut your eyes I'll hush my doubts, whatever happens I'll just let it happen. Wait, but don't you fucking scream his name into my mouth, I'll have to scrape it from my throat in the morning. I can be the floor you be the clothes, throw yourself upon me rest your bones. I can be the stem you be the rose blooming off of me, my love you grow. You can come to me when he is gone, my door is open. God I am open. I want to feel your heartbeat in my arms, I'll try not to hold too tight. You can use me like he's using you, come to my bedroom, sleep in my bedroom. You better wash your skin before you do, don't make me taste him, no, please don't make me drink all of his sweat from out of your pores. I can be the floor you be the clothes, throw yourself upon me rest your bones. I can be the stem you be the rose, blooming off of me, my love you grow. I don't know how but you got me. I'm a fly in you honey, I will die in you honey, I'm licking your sugar off of my lips, I'm drunk on the liquor that's in your kiss. There's a curse in your name, babe, I've been sighing your name -- I've been breathing it out here in tiny ghosts, I've been giving them life with the things I wrote. He doesn't love you, he just takes what he can get. I guess that makes him more like you than you'd admit because you'll never love me, but when he breaks your heart I will try my best not to let you fall apart. I feel so blessed to have held your face. I feel so blessed to have felt this pain. Now I'm dancing in the rain and bathing in your name, I feel so blessed to have felt this way. You crashed into my life then you walked away. You found fire in my mouth and you fed the flame, and I know you felt that heat. I felt you sweating through my sheets. I know what I felt because I felt it and that won't change. That fine line between selfless and helpless? I'm walking it. I crawled too close to your bootheel and I got kicked. No, I know it's not your fault. You were just trying to walk and I gave what I gave when I gave it--I wanted to GIVE. He doesn't love you (Everyone @ Zack: "He doesn't love you"). You'll never love me, but that's okay. He doesn't love you. He doesn't, he doesn't, he doesn't--maybe he loves you. I really hope he does. You'll never love me and that's okay because I gave what I gave when I gave it. I wanted to GIVE. I wanted to give…
