read all the words upon the note
that you handed me so insincerely.
what did you expect for me to say
when you had to ask how it made me feel?
your handwriting was perfect.
you spelled everything correctly,
except for one small tiny thing
that i wouldn't mention anyways.

so now by candlelight in my new bedroom
it's in the basement under the stairs.
i'm writing you a letter 200 miles away.
i hope that it will reach you.
some parts of it sound foolish,
like the part about the vine
that's growing through the window
and reaching towards my bed.
i hope one night while i'm asleep
that i find it wrapped all around me,
to come and take me away.
i hope one night while i'm asleep
that i find it wrapped all around me,
to come and take me away.

to take me away
to take me away
to take me away
to take me away.

i hope one night while i'm asleep
that vine will wrap all around me
to come and take me away.
