I took a look into your ocean heart
And ever since I stumbled through the dark
I’m like a moth attracted to a flame
‘Cause since we met you know I’ll never be the same

Oh, I’m like a tiger, but in black and blue
‘Cause all my bruises, well, they’re all for you
I wonder if you’ll ever know my name
I wonder if we’ll ever-ever meet again

What if I see you alone on the pavement?
Will my heart freeze, will the sun melt down my bones?
‘Cause when I think of you my fingers are quicksand
I want to hold you close
I’ll never know

1, 2, 3, ah!

I’m searching deserts under [???] skies
Just to stare into your diamond eyes
I’ll build a rocket and I’ll fly to space
Just so that I can touch your picture-perfect face
Oh-oh, your picture-perfect face

I wonder if you’d do the same for me
Or would you stay there and just let me be?
And all my blood will drip the color gold
‘Cause that’s the love that burns for you within my soul

What if I see you alone on the pavement?
Will my heart freeze, will the sun melt down my bones?
‘Cause when I think of you my fingers are quicksand
I want to hold you close
I’ll never know
(x3)

1, 2, 3, ah!

    General CommentI'm pretty sure here:

    I wonder if you’d do the same for me
    Or would you stay there and just let me [be]?
    And all my blood will drip the color gold
    ‘Cause that’s the love that burns for you within my soul

    when it says 'be', it might actually say 'bleed'? I feel this makes more sense as the next line goes on to talk about blood so...
