Somewhere there's a heart in your body
You hide it well, but sooner or later, babe, I'll get to it
Girl, that face just keeps on smiling
No, love don't have to be so lonely
But it has to hurt this bad

And we'll wait til dark to dig a hole outside
Big enough for you to fit inside
All those hearts you broke, still beating
This is helping, honey, this is healing

There was a time when your body kept on beating
Oh, you're good for now
I point to buried treasure in the shoreline
Girl, we'll make the most of what you've got
Until the day when we can find me some more

We'll wait til dark to dig that hole outside
Big enough for you to fit inside
All those hearts you broke, still beating
This is helping, honey, this is feeling

    General CommentGreat song I can't believe nobody has commented on it, I think it's about a girl who's lost herself and then meets somebody who helps her heal her wounds and find the buried treasure inside of her.

    General CommentNo this is about a guy who kills a girl, possibly removes her heart, justifies the killing as a cleansing method for people he perceives she had done wrong to, references other people he's killed buried along a shoreline, and at the end alludes to the fact that this will only temporarily satiate his need to kill until he can find more victims. All these songs are about murder and dismemberment, inspired by Southern Grotesque authors like Cormac Mccarthy and Flannery O' Connor.
