A little hope tonight
it was small but it was all I needed
a split second when we both lost control
it wasn’t just me
it wasn’t just me when we stopped in the street
you stopped breathing and your head tilted back
heart attack
you closed your eyes and opened your mouth
nothing came out so I went in
you closed your eyes and opened your mouth
we both stopped in the middle of the street
I’d like to think that it wasn’t just me
your head leaned back
heart attack
we both stopped in the middle of the street
three months of frustration and self mutilation
all burned away in the middle of the street
but later that night you brought it all back
why did I do that
Why did I do that
why are you afraid of me
afraid to be alone with me
you know I’ll ask and then you’ll crash
now I know why you’re afraid of me
you closed your eyes...

    General CommentInterresting how in Dan Potthast version, the guy seems to feel himself guilty and that in Toh Kay version, the guy seems to put the fault on the girl...
