lyrics

It’s not the mirror telling lies
i’ve lost sight, a stranger in my eyes
i feel it deep within my bones
i’m falling fast, feeling alone
and i just can’t take it

Tear my ribs open
and plant yourself
Become the flowers
that grow from my chest
I'll crave the rain
I'll crave the sun
Just keep
me safe


I’ve lost all to blame
everything i’ve built in my chest i’ve pushed away
on and on again you say
you see these things inside of me
that i just can’t find,

Tear my ribs open
and plant yourself
Become the flowers
that grow from my chest
I'll crave the rain
I'll crave the sun
Just keep
Just keep me


Holding on to the past
(are you gone for good?)

I’ve buried myself too deep
(in your shallow graves)


Is it wrong to feel nothing like I should?

But I keep holding on
(
Am I really gone for good?)

I watched you fall
Slower than the rain
The night we said goodbye

(I can’t visit your grave

For it’s dug too deep
I can’t visit your grave

But not in fear that I’d weep

I can’t visit your grave
It’s a bed we both share

I can’t visit your grave
Because I’m already there)
