Put your swords away
I'm already down
The higher we both climb
The further we fall
Now we're under looking up into the floor
And burn each other though we're dying for more
We're stuck on this disfunction
We love it to our death
We celebrate destruction by lighting up this bed

You can take your love away
But don't you ever leave me alone
Burn the ghosts we've carried home
Come on, touch me
Show me you're imperfect, too
These broken lights
They shine on us tonight

We don't talk much
When there's so much to say
We don't listen, but yet we try anyway
My stomach feels sick, bitter, and open
Reveries of helplessness
Have left me all but hopin'

We strip each other's beauty
We push it to the end
We face each other smiling
And leave it all unsaid

You can take your love away
But don't you ever leave me alone
Burn the ghosts we've carried home
Come on, touch me
Show me you're imperfect, too
These broken lights
They shine on us tonight

We kiss till we bleed
We feel so much it's killing us
We fight till were free
And he threatens to leave but won't let me
We cry till we see
Infatuations break us down
We're healing at three
We dance inside this tragedy
We dance inside this tragedy

You can take your love away
But don't you ever leave me alone
Burn the ghosts we've carried home
Come on, touch me
Show me you're imperfect, too
These broken lights
They shine on us tonight
