You are pretty down to your bones
You are ivory and wire and pearls
I will kiss and kiss and kiss your skin
Beg for you to let me in
But oh, sometimes it hurts
You pluck my nerves

I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else but you
You are the neck
Of the bottle I'm living in
I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else but you
I do adore
The hand that I've been dealt
Been dealt

I whimper, laugh, and cry
There is a murmur of your love inside
When you dress me in the dream you made
I'll be your bargain, be your favorite
But oh, sometimes it hurts
You pluck my nerves

I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else but you
You are the neck
Of the bottle I'm living in
I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else but you
I do adore

I do adore
The way you are
Do you adore me?
Dear, don't
Say that you don't
Do you adore
The way you are?
Do you adore me?
Don't say you won't

I wanna cry
I wanna scream
Oh, you're making me shake
Break, fall to the floor
I do adore
Do you adore
Do you adore me?

I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else but you
I never wanted anyone else
Don't want anyone else

Never ever, ever want you gone
I don't
I don't want anyone else but you
Never ever, ever want you gone
I don't
I don't want anyone else but you

    "I whimper, laugh, and cry"

    I love this song, especially the cadence of the bridge-y sections near the end, and the lyrics are beautiful. But self-explanatory, I think. ;P

    General Commentthis song is brilliant! i only wish it was on the actual album. (bonus songs are cool too though, don't get me wrong) The bridge is my favorite part. The way she sings it and how the piano keys move along with her voice is awesome.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's

    "When you dress me in the dream you made
    I'll be your broad, and be your fake"



    when Greta sings it, it doesn't sound like there's enough room for the syllables to fit.
