Can foolhardy love affairs
be more than just wet thighs?
all that you're giving me
I don't recognize

the strength of your beauty's been
somewhere seeking solitude
but you’re just afraid of me
it's all in your eyes

and here we are
my heart's in your hand
we did this all wrong
let's do it again
you're a gun

this bad taste of leaving
will rush through our mouths
the words that I'm sealing
I'll start with now

and if my words were stone
I'd kiss them in your mouth
and though you're the lion
I'll drag you down

let's sing tonight
holding my hand
we could be friends
but I'm better off sleeping alone

I'm nothing, like an urn
I'm filling my body with flesh the you’ve burnt

    General Commentwow no one commented BEST SONG EVER

    it is about how two people like each other but one is hiding it completely being scared maybe for social reasons
    she will not accept her own love for him and he is saying I dont want to just be friends I want to be something more

    I think "and though you're the lion. I'll drag you down " means that she is too proud and he will drag her down to the level everyone shares I dont know kind of a confusing line kind of taking it from the perception of lions being the king/queens of their habitat.

    "I'm nothing, like an urn. I'm filling my body with flesh the you’ve burnt" I picture this line being about how everything he does for her she just shoots them down and that is the burning flesh building up inside of him, which is his anger, sadness, all his fading love.

    General Commentthe intro "my glowing morning dreams" is fucking incredible and for my money better than this song itself.
