teeth mark bruise on your arm
that's what he gave you
no chocolates in a heart
just the same old screw
when you take off your clothes
and realize you have no more secrets
i hope it's a surprise
that this is as intimate as it gets

i'm trying to sleep, why don't you
leave me alone
you can call me a creep if you want to
we can smell our own
if you think anything that you tell me
i didn't already know
it's just some version of ? honesty
i've heard it before

you have an image of him sleeping
i can see that being sad
give a mouthful of pennies to remind him
of what he once had
complaining you turn all the women you know
into one
remember all the mean things that they said
or done

i'm trying to sleep, why don't you
leave me alone
you can call me creep if you want to
we can smell our own
if you think anything that you tell me
i didn't already know
it's just some version of ? honesty
i've heard it before

you'll be with your one truth love,
and you'll realize it's not a dream
but it won't be enough,
and you'll wonder what's left unseen
you'll hate yourself and you'll treat him bad
until you finally leave
to prepare for a lifetime of pretending
to search for a thing that you already had
a person you could fall in love with
if they weren't already in your bed

i'm trying to sleep, why don't you
leave me alone
you can call me creep if you want to
we can smell our own
if you think anything that you tell me
i didn't already know
it's just some version of ? honesty
i've heard it before

    General Commenti don't know about the "we can smell our own" line... because i don't know what that actually means, how exactly it makes sense...

    i've seen it interpreted as "just a version of bedroom honesty"... but i don't understand how anyone can hear him saying BEDROOM there.
