Break my hand
Take my heart
Kiss me hard
Just to start
Force me close
Let me inside
No room between
Nowhere to hide

My hair hangs long
Your black tie straight
These things we pull
In love and hate
I’ll hit you harder
Just kiss my face
You need to go
My boyfriend’s never late

We begin on your return
Because you never stay sober
If you can fake trust again
Maybe we can start over
You’ll take one more shot
My fingers in your hair
My lipstick brushes your bruises
Kiss back, show you care

I want to blame loneliness
But maybe it’s just fate
Your lips always find mine
Despite all of the hate
Tequila helps you forget me
But gin makes you weak
Mary Jane helps soothe me
So, very calmly, I reach

Do I love you?
You want to know
Questions make me leave
I kiss, then go
Why don’t we flinch
When we say hello?
We know what’s coming
Time for the show:

Cut my arms
Fuel my pain
These hotel beds
Know our names
Hold me tighter
Hate me, tiger
Hello’s to burn
Sheets on fire
