you crawl out of bed.
i barely move.
the black is blacker than this room.
but you are young,
your heart is cold,
and i'm not asking names.

i would do anything to win you back
even pretend your kiss is only mine.
is your kiss only mine?

understanding you will be the death of me.
understanding me will be the end of you, soon we'll see.
i am what you need.
if you're gonna break down, stay with me.
you're crushing all our dreams,
you're crushing all of me, customary love.

somebody, stay with me,
i've gotta get out of this. customary love.
'cause i don't want to be with you,
i'm just plain sick of this. customary love.
everybody's staring at me,
i've gotta get out of this. customary love.
i don't want to be with you,
i'm just plain sick of this. customary love.

you call.
you say his eyes bury you.
the black is blacker than this room.
i cannot sleep,
i cannot wake.
i cannot bear this shame.

understanding you will be the death of me.
understanding me will be the end of you, soon we'll see.
'cause i am what you need.
if you're gonna break down, stay with me.
you're crushing all our dreams,
you're crushing all of me, customary love.

somebody, stay with me,
i've gotta get out of this. customary love.
'cause i don't want to be with you,
i'm just plain sick of this. customary love.
everybody's staring at me,
i've gotta get out of this. customary love.
i don't want to be with you,
i'm just plain sick of this. customary love.

'cause i don't care no more.
if i'm gonna lay down aside the core.
i will crush all our dreams,
i will crush all of them, customary love.
customary love.

everybody's been telling me,
i don't need this. customary love.
i need some time now by myself,
i need some time. customary love.
i need some time by myself,
i need some time. customary love.
just sit down and watch
the weak; i feel so weak. customary love.
i need some time by myself,
i need some time alone. customary love.
