The deep's too deep and the salty sweet in this white room
The tall's too tall for a girl to fall through a blood moon
I didn't know your teeth were swords, no I didn't

I gotta, I gotta, I gotta hold on to you
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta race her
I gotta, I gotta go this far

You didn't know
I locked myself in your heart
I can't get out
Unless you tear me apart

It always burns but I never learn to keep driving
Slow motion chase plays on repeat in my head
Between the lost and the faintest layers is your woman

I gotta, I gotta, I gotta maniac
That's sitting, she's sitting on my shoulder
I gotta, I gotta go this far

You didn't know
I locked myself in your heart
I can't get out
Unless you tear me apart
I try to feel
Feel my way through the dark
Instincts don't help
A lonely animal
Animal
Animal

I loved you too hard
I loved you so hard

I never measured up to your mathematics
I never settled like the dust inside of your attics

I got a, I got a, I got a resting place
But cannot, but cannot, but cannot find her
I gotta, I gotta work this out now

You didn't know
I locked myself in your heart
I can't get out
Unless you tear me apart
I try to feel
Feel my way through the dark
Instincts don't help

You didn't know
I locked myself in your heart
I can't get out
Unless you tear me apart
I try to feel
Feel my way through the dark
Instincts don't help
A lonely animal
Animal
Animal

I loved you too hard
I loved you too hard
I loved you too hard

    Are you sure it's not 'razor'? It sounded like she said razor lol. Pretty intense.
    Well...if it's wrong, way to tone the song down :)

    Btw, I love this song so much.
