lyrics

Tell me I'm safe here
You ain't gotta some where
I'll tell you you're safe here
You ain't gotta go no where

You ain't gotta love me
You ain't gonna love me

Tell me I'm safe here
You ain't gotta some where

I press my forehead
to yours
on a dimly lit street
I am a jealous girl
And you,
a foolish boy
Tonight,
we ache inside cocoons
I grow wings to prove
I can be a forgiving woman
You do the same
to show just how
understanding you are
But we
are just two children
with these knives in our backs
And flowers in our hands
This is a portrait of
how the wounded trust
I don't know when
I chose to give you
my spirit but I know
I get mindless when
I want to be loved
Ask everyone to lasso
the moon down for me
so I don't gotta howl so often
But you lassoed the moon
in your smile - I know it
was only for one night
But baby,
It was enough to last
me for a century
I wanted you to teach me
Baptism into filth
How I could still come
from the mud clean and
I never need the
preacher in you
to teach me how
to survive myself or
this kind of love
I just
always wanted
to be seen fully by you
So I kissed your shoulder
Like it was the
most honest prayer
I never expected anything from you
Except that we could unlearn
how a body can drown
I never expected anything
except you looking at
my broken knuckles saying
Ok, I am still here
You brave child I am still here
and no one is going
to devour the child of faith
inside you today

Tell me I'm safe here
You ain't gotta some where
I'll tell you you're safe here
You ain't gotta go no where

You ain't gotta love me
You ain't gonna love me

Tell me I'm safe here
You ain't gotta some where

So stay
Please tell me you'll stay
Don't you leave me like this tonight
You used to feel so right
