I came up near to you
My arm around your waist
I was wanting to get to know you
Lean in and get a taste
I could hear your heart beating
And I found I wanted to eat your heart up
Chew it up and swallow
Get your blood to flow through my head
Oh no…

If I were to eat your heart up
And get your blood to flow in my wake
I’d be on to make the same mistake again
With someone else
You would be so easy to eat
You would be so easy to eat
You would be so easy to eat

My heart is like a savage, starving out and hiding low
Sees a chance it strikes and drags its kill back underground to gorge
Oh my heart…

I held you high off the ground
Lately you’re telling me
You wanna be let down and you could walk around in the world with me
Oh my heart…

Where would we start? What would we do?
And what would people think
When they saw me out with you
It’s so easy to feel like you have to hide your heart away
It’s so easy to feel like you have to hide it all away
It’s so easy to feel like you have to hide it all

    General CommentI don't know if this about being gay/bi (I don't know if KM is gay or bi) but it reminds me of how I felt about being gay in high school. I was really ashamed of having sexual/romantic feelings so when I did have them they were very intense and surreptitious and I never told anyone--like the part about the heart going underground to gorge. So I like to think the end of the song is about not being ashamed of/compartmentalizing your sexuality.
