I asked for a glass of water,
you followed through with sand.
I asked for a lover,
you lent me my hand.
I asked for your heart,
and you showed me the stars.
Is this how generous you are, my love?

I needed your skin,
well you gave an .
I asked for your blood,
you showed me the bathroom sink.
I wanted you to make me
hold you closer than before.
Is this how generous you are, my love?

I asked for your words,
and you gave me the key to a hope chest.
Said I was searching for the truth,
and you offered me condolences.
Even the sirens gave their sailors songs
that they could not ignore.
Is this how generous you are, my love?

I asked you to watch over me,
you joined the bystanders.
I asked you then to catch me,
you got out the binoculours.
I asked for you mercy,
you covered me in feathers in tar.
Is this how generous you are, my love?
