When I first met you I was ten
And you would always twirl your hands
In the wings before our scene
I liked that
Last time I saw you I fell down
That isn't like me at all
But my apoplexy's worst
When I'm spooked

But oh, I wouldn't dare to speak your name out loud
Don't think that I'm too proud to bleed
But still, I know that I would kill to only know
The words you need

You weren't alone, but he was smart
He knew the words you liked to hear
They were honest, they were dark
They were beautiful
When he first spoke to you, it was
In some party girl's jacuzzi
You were woozy, he was smooth
You liked that, didn't you?

But oh, at least he dared to speak his dreams out loud
Though he was much too proud already
But still, I know that I would kill him just to know
The words you need

I dream of choking him to death
His heartbeat halts
And as he breathes his final breath
You and I
You'll say to me, "He was such a bore"
While the body is still warm
And I'll never let you come
To harm

But all of this is just my head
The words, the tune, the life, the dead
And I'm not yet strong enough
To make my love known
