lyrics

Crossing paths in an evening parking lot
Only one shopper, only one package bought
She asks me if I’m new in town
I’m passing through, but I say I’ve been around
She says, “My monster has a face unlike any other
Toothy grin – expectant hunger.”
Favor the taste unripe; lives intertwined
Savor: no haste once one commits the crime

I tie her down and take a long look into her eyes
They are willing but afraid at the same time
Disenchanted with the world she used to love
She gives away to the man who stands above
Now she’s sitting with her knees pulled up to her chest
Breathing hard; choking back tears of regret
No going back, no forgetting what she now knows
She’ll never be the girl she was just a few hours ago

I promised you the world
Even as sirens call for surrender, I won’t give in
You hold something I can’t let go
‘til the day I am falling out of love again

I cry to forget her love
It’s like the last time
Her pain, it makes me feel alive
She lets me get away with everything
Let go let go let go now

I cross these fields, feeling the weight in my arms
Cold shelter, away from their howls
Giving chase, through the woods at night
I don’t know who to call
These voices keep telling me
There’s only one truth in which to believe
A deathly silence spews from her mouth
I think I’ve found a way out

I promised you the world
Even as sirens call for surrender, I won’t give in
You hold something I can’t let go
‘til the day I am falling out of love again
