She says she barely sleeps and if she does its fitfully,
hears footsteps in the leaves and if she dreams she dreams of
the sounds he'll never speak the words left out between the beat
of clashing teeth and tongues. The roar of background hum
that blooms inside her listening ears to be the noise she wants to hear
she only wants to do you proud. only wants to make you proud now.
and in a stranger's bed head next to strangers head
she chokes on words that won't come out
the tv's turned up far too loud, too loud.


so here we go again. head on the block again
the guillotine just quickens pace, teeth sink in to leave the taste of blood
and her head hits the floor, lips still moving, mouthing to implore
you're all i want. (x3) and all i want's you.


she says she barely sleeps but if she does its fitfully,
hears footsteps in the leaves and if she dreams she dreams of
the sounds he'll never speak, the words he'll leave between the beat
of clashing teeth and tongue. the roar of background hum
that blooms inside her listening ears to be the song she wants to hear
she only wants to do you proud. only wants to do you proud now
and in a foreign bed, head next to foreign heads
a sad song in a minor key (x2) please
