I cannot believe you today. You have a way with getting your way. You pack a punch in that sneaky little touch. But, hold your tongue babe, it's gonna start a fire. And hold my hand cause you are such a good liar. And it all starts with a shock to the heart.

So there I go again always playing pretend when I'd rather be playing dead. These are the words that drip from my bleeding lips. But I'm a liar so don't read into this.

Let's meet in an honest place and you'll wear that blank look on your face, scared just like a child. But you can hide it with a smile.

I'll admit I'm a mess. I don't do well under stress. I am trying but I am not at my best. Take a pretty little picture, almost makes your lips hurt from all of the wanting, only wanting one thing.
