My heart is like a black box, beating to the last drop
Capturing her image inside of me
It gets harder;
Each and every angle distorts us
Like missing someone you never want to see again

As darkness spreads its wings to fly on by
Like angels, like lightning ‘cross a fiery sky
I will be free, hope is in me
I’ve never felt more courage than I do right now

I was just a child
I want you to be the end of my innocence
The cause of my experience

I’m in love with a victim
The angel with the dark, inviting eyes
I have a hollow record bought; details
‘bout the night my burning scars wore holes within
It was only for love’s sake (only through heartache)

I follow all the signs that tell me not to say a word
Because my hope and desire is engendered in her
It’s a weakness
Eating me alive
Every compromise scathes like a bloodied razor

Your warm embrace is a wish that’s part of me
A falling out of grace that no one cares to see
I’ve waited all my life just to meet someone like you
And now you tear it all away

I didn’t want you to love me
I was happy
I was happy
Just to know you
