I came clean and there you went
Stitching up every single seam I split
You want to heal me, want to trace the scars
Gonna light a flame for all the unsaved girls

Black tie on the floor
Paper-thin dress on a desk chair
(?)
Cigarette breath, sugar-spun voice

You can pull me aside
Hold me like a wounded bird
Oh, but I am no prize
I am not harmless

We charmed the light into doing our work
But it was the dark we called beautiful
I'll teach you to cry in a crowded room
Teach you how to talk until your teeth come loose

You can pull me aside
Hold me like a wounded bird
But I am no prize
I am not harmless

Tell me, tell me, tell me
Will it make you feel better now
If you tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Tell me I'm hysterical

Match wits, bury my will
Time will knock you off quick
Time will take you out
And I'll be the thief you forgot to chase
The brambles sprung back in the hero's face

You can pull me aside
Whisper my apologies
But I am no prize
I am not harmless
