Break me gently, kill me softly shot gun.
I’m cool like water that breaks against the shore.
You did this for him, you left him wanting more.
The waves on my back will tear at my heart no more.

I spent so long trying to write the perfect song, but it ended up in pieces.
Streetlights keep me warm tonight because she sleeps in another city.
Relieve me from this pain
From all your pain.
If my first means nothing don’t let the last go to waste.

Will you meet me in Riverside, we can’t be late.
I burnt my eyes trying to find a reason for this to fall apart.

I’m breathing oceans and distorting my losses.
The black clouds around your eyes soften me.
I’ll show you how this should be done, real passion and real grace, my love.
I’m not faceless like the fraud you used to give yourself to.

July, the day dawn came, blossoming with a heart to break in half.

    General Commenti hear " but it ended up dead in pieces on the floor."
    I also hear Relieve me from YOUR pain... idk if thatz just me.
    And i also thought it was "if never means nothing, then don't let my last go to waste with you, please don't let my" aside from "my first means nothing"
    And before "i'll show you how this should be done" i think i hear "i must be close"
