i don't wanna leave
when you scream at me
and tell me you're used up,
that i should turn and walk away.
i try to make you smile
but you just laughed at me
through tears of spiteful rage.
there were stars over your face tonight.

do you think you'll survive?
you're a fool, kid. they'll eat you alive.
when you're lonely,
they come out at night with those fangs.

jamie, we're alone on the kitchen floor.
in a cold and sterile bed,
there are stars over your head, my love.

as you undress for him, your knees are trembling.
yet we just stand and watch
and beat you to your confidence.

and do you think you'll survive?
you're a fool, kid. they'll eat you alive.
when you're lonely,
they come out at night with those fangs.

i go to bed with you in my head,
holding on to dignity.

and do you think you'll survive?
you're a fool, kid. they'll eat you alive.
when you're all alone,
they come out at night with those fangs.
